Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Cherry blossoms will soon fill tree limbs and appear as a sure sign of spring. I’ve been watching robins all winter here in New Jersey as well as sons of blue jays. Thinking about spring does not involve my allergies going haywire, so I’m crafting with cherry blossom thoughts. Easy to duplicate, let’s see the possibilities with this design!

Cherry Blossoms on a heart
Thinking about cherry blossoms and how I can create them in my projects takes me directly to the Colorful Seasons bundle. This is a bundle from the 2017 Annual Catalog… so the 10% off sale still applies! Yay!
Stamping onto a piece of watercolor paper, I used an Aqua Painter to “messy up” the stamped images. Getting precise images creates a certain “mood” to a project. Keeping the mood hazy and watercolored beings to mind daydreams and a make believe, allergy-free, Spring season. That’s certainly not reality, is it??? To bring the hazy flowers somewhat back to reality, I added white embossed flower centers that would allow the actual flowers to do whatever they want and still give the viewer’s mind somewhere to rest. Anchoring the design is a crisp and bold stamped sentiment.
