Well, I'm not sure if spring is ever coming to Calgary- we had snow all weekend! Bleh :-p

So, ironically I used a Penny Black Christmas stamp, which I changed up to look springlike by using spring colours. I first used blue and green Distress Stains on the background with a mist of blue Dylusions Ink spray over top. Then I heat embossed my stamped image and coloured in with Gellyroll Glaze and Soufflé pens. They flow so nicely in an embossed image! Then I added some raindrops with a Zig two-way pen and iridescent foil and some more Soufflé pen highlights. I cut out the flowers and butterflies from an envelope that came in the mail! And added some gel pens and Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I popped up some of the flowers and the butterflies with foam dots and then I mounted it on some patterned paper and a Kraft card.

Here's hoping for spring!
