Plum Blossom Branch

I've used the Plum Blossom Branch and the small Sakura Branch (Cherry Blossom) images to create these two cards, once again offering contrasting effects by changing backgrounds. The primary plum blossom image in both cards was stamped in black ink and embossed on background papers created with color sprays and pigment inks. Flower blossoms were colored with twinkling H2O's, and buds were given extra dimension with pearl stickler dots.

In the green card, the cherry blossom branch was stamped in pale pink on a pink panel and in pale green on the folded white cardstock. In the purple card, the branch was stamped in white ink on a black cardstock panel, and layered with other cardstock to complete the card. Once again, the impact is considerably different - one is fresh and gentle, and the other is more dramatic; but the floral images are great no matter how you use them!
