Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Acrylic paints and Stickles.

Hi there,

It's been so sunny the last few days, it's made me feel that Spring and Summer are just round the corner, which inspired me to make this card, using 

The stamps I've used are.... 
Winter TreeTall Grass, one of the butterflies from the Katie Kisses Set and the Birds from the Free Your Imagination Set.

This is an 8"x 8" card, the background was created using a mask for the Sun and Distress inks blended, then spritzed with water and blotted. The grass is done using a ripped piece of paper and different greens. I then Stamped the Trees, again in different browns.
Then came the fun part, using the handle end of a paint brush and some acrylic paint, I dabbed yellow and white to the trees, and pink and white for the flowers.

I also added green leaves to the trees and a bit of grass in the distance using a promarker, and dabbed the flowers with Stickles. I coloured and fussy cut the butterfly, and stamped the birds.
