The Cherry Blossom set contains three individual flowers that are perfect for creating CAS style cards. I stamped each of the images in the bottom corner of a kraft coloured card base, and set to work with my coloured pencils.
To give the impression that the flowers are floating on water, I added a thick shadow beneath each one. This gives the illusion of depth.
Adding "ripples" gives the impression of movement, like little wavelets radiating out from each blossom as it moves on the surface of the water. To add the ripples, I started on the very tip of my brush marker and then pressed down as I made the stroke, before coming up to the tip again. It's a stroke that needs a bit of practise, but is perfect for creating waves.
