Cherry Blossoms

Here is what I have been wearing since Monday. I love it so much, I didn't even wear PINK on Wednesday, although I was still quite mean....LOL So, the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. was held March 26th - April 10th, and the blossoms are always beautiful!. I haven't been in years, but I think it's something all Americans should do once in a lifetime.......(or visitors, for that matter!)

This is NR, FBL502 (see below) as a base, and stamped with konad white and pink using plate s9, and T25!!! (the symbols are "beauty" on my middle finger and "Life/Destiny" on my ring. Thank you Bless!!!! <3

(OOH! - The elusive Right Hand!!!)

The birds were from plate SR08-1, which I ordered from Nail Art Diva!. It actually is supposed to be used with the "application device" (stamping machine), but I used it with my konad stamper and it was fine. I have the whole NAD kit, but haven't used it, yet! Things are frequently out of stock, so I was stoked to get the bird plate!

My first attempt at "freehand painting" ; I used Color Club "Positively Posh" for the branches, essence "I Love This City" for the blossoms, and white (el-cheapo, no name) for the white dots. This was a bit tougher than I had expected - maybe next time I'll try acrylic paints...but I think it looks OK.

This is what I used as my base - Nature Republic, FBL502 - it is a little holo, but with little sun, it was more like a micro-glitter.

GIGI!!!! Is basking in the sun! *snort*

So, read the information on the Sakura and see if you think I captured the essence of the meaning of these gorgeous flowers!

Be Pawlished!
