Color UV map not showing colors correctly in render

I am new to animation so please bare with me. I am working on this little tree and have mapped the UV and copied outline to paint. The first time I mapped the UV all of the blossoms and sticks mapped on top of each other. I had hoped this would work for the color uv map since they were all objects that were a linked copy of the original. The color didn’t show on the flowers or sticks when I rendered so I separated them all. I then painted and loaded the new color map. Still no color on my blossoms and sticks. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? :confused:

I have attached a picture of the color map, the rend
Please not that the color map is very crude as, at this point, I am just making sure the color map works.


Can you upload a .blend file with the problem?
