Cherry Blossom Wall Art from a Recycled Soda Bottle

Here is a great wall art tutorial from Alphamom!
We like the idea of using a canvas instead of poster paper, but it really depends on it you plan to frame your art or not!  You may even want to consider adding some rhinestones or glitter for added pizazz - but it is absolutely gorgeous as is!
 
Make cherry blossom artwork with a recycled 2-liter soda bottle as a stamp! Here are the detailed instructions.
Start by using dark paint to paint a branch on poster board. Branches are easy to paint. If you can’t paint in a straight line, it looks even better.
I cut this piece of poster board in half lengthwise because I want it to look more like an art panel than a poster (or use canvas!).
Once the branch is painted, let it dry before continuing with the stamping.
Now let’s do the stamping. Pour some paint on a paper plate and dip the plastic bottle.
The bottom of 2-liter soda bottle has five points like the five petals of a cherry blossom.
Press the plastic bottle on the poster board, then lift up. Dip the bottle in more paint each time you repeat the stamp. This is really fun, add as many blossoms as you want.
