IO Flowering Tree

I love Impression Obsession dies - especially those Spiral Flowers! I also find myself using the leafy branch die on everything lately. 

First, I cut the tree and colored it with my Copic markers.  I then cut leaves from the leafy branch die, colored them with Copics and glued them onto the tree.  I cut more branches in blue and weaved them into the grass. I liked the added pop of color of the blue leaves behind the orange roses. The peachy-orange roses and yellow flowers were created using the Spiral Flowers die and were colored with distress ink.

For the yellow flowers I only used half of the tiny rolled daisy die. After the yellow distress ink dried, I cut the daisy die cut in half before rolling it. I used both halves of the die cut. It thinned the flowers out a little and made them a little smaller.  The flowers are small but I was afraid of overpowering the tree.  It may be difficult to see but I used flower soft in small spots on the branches to emulate buds.
