Hello crafters!

 I had so much fun and relax making this set. 
It may say I'm already missing the Spring to come :-)
Take a look at the step by step pics to see how I achieved this result. 

I started with my using my new flowers stencil by Darkroom Door and applying the modeling paste, heating it up until it bubbled (you know me...). 
Then I placed pieces of an old dictionary pages and Tim Holtz washi tape. 

I covered everything with a thin layer of gesso and started to give colors 
to my background using blues, yellow and brown paints. 
Then I experimented with black paint by covering the flowers and wiping the paint out with some water that the paint stayed only in the bottom areas. 
After that I played with some doodling which was fun. 

I colored the flowers using oil pastels and then applied some white gesso 
using dry brush technique to calm down the colors. 
Added stamping and highlightes the edges with black crayon. 
Finally cut my base into two parts making two cards.
