It felt like Spring here over the weekend, then on Monday it SNOWED! I am sick of all this winter weather that just won't go away. I colored this pretty stamp to remind me that Spring is close and hopefully the last snow is now melting away! I hope anyway.
This card was made for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, TSSC60. It was harder for me than I thought it would be. I changed my mind about the strips on the top many times. Actually I never would have thought this paper would have gone the best after I colored the image, I guess you just never know till you try different things! The butterfly was stamped and colored twice so I could cut one out and pop part of it up to give the illusion of it flying. I also painted it with sky blue Shimmerz so it would look like it was soft. The flowers were stickled so they would look a bit like morning dew with the sun hitting them. I tried out my new cloud maker on the backround, boy do I love that thing, it makes it so easy and fast to make a different shaped clouds. I did the clouds really light because it was my first time using it with an image that was already colored and I didn't want to make a mistake.
