Mouse's Cherry Tree

I've been arting again! The flowers are all blooming around here. We have a gorgeous Japanese Cherry Kwanzan tree in our yard that inspired me to try this project. The background is watercolor and the blossoms are mulberry paper dyed with watercolor (pink) and yellow stamping ink in the middle. The leaves are green mulberry paper. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.

Happy Spring!
