Take your paint brush, and carefully add a drop of the black paint onto the paper. Use your straw to gently blow the ink around the page to create the tree and branches.

Allow the paint to dry completely.

*This is a fun technique to try, especially to make the tree and branches more realistic. You will see it takes a little trial and error, but have fun with it!

Now, it’s time to add the beautiful flowers to your cherry blossom tree! Place your finger onto your RoseArt Watercolors and Poster Paints and stamp onto the paper. You can use several different shades of red and pink, or even purple to bring your tree to life.
