I wanted to do cherry blossoms since they're one of my favorite flowers. I wanted it clean and I'm not really a painter so I did the skeleton of the tree in a black acrylic paint. The blossoms are done by making a pattern and then tracing and hand cutting each of them out from acrylic felt. Once they were cut, I've been doing a stem stitch and french knot stitch for the stamen in a chocolate embroidery floss. It's not finished yet, I want the blossoms to be abundant when I'm finished.
