Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Cherry Blossom Sheltering Tree
Well, I’ve called this blog post ‘cherry blossom’ because that’s what I was aiming for. I’m not sure I was totally on point, but there’s a kind of look of the oriental about it. Vaguely. Somewhere….
Perhaps it’s the jaunty angle of the tree? Again, that was an attempt at getting the branches to appear as though they’re blowing in the wind. But whatever the attempt was, I’m kinda happy with this!
I went with Rose Red on the tree with a hint of Blushing Bride in the background. Then the scattering of the tiny pearls really lifted it. Until I added those, it wasn’t quite right, but with those acting as blowing petals, I think I got it a little more on track!
As you know, I like to use only one stamp set on a project if possible, so I took the greeting from the same Sheltering Tree stamp set. There are some really charming phrases in it, and I’d bypassed them in the past because all I could see was the tree!
Anyway, I hope you like it, whether cherry blossom or not!
