"Cherry Tree in Blossom" Japan 1981                                        
This was for the Postage Stamp 2 Tracker.  There were just so many great images to choose from that it was a hard decision.  I went with this one to try my hand at a little more fine line work and because of the subtle colors.  I also like Japanese culture and themes so this one just jumped out at me.  I was very pleased with how the lines of her face and hand turned out.  And i was happy with how the coloring captured the beauty of the piece without overpowering it.  I also used a scallop edge puncher to make the postage stamp border around the card.
