Laugh In The Sunshine!

Isn't it funny how when the sun is shining it's so easy to see summer coming?! When it's gloomy I seem to think more about how winter just won't leave! The sun is shining today!! I made a collage with several Prickley Pear images in a soft color palette.

I used watercolor paper for this card. I inked a clear stamp block with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I spritzed it with water and stamped it over the music images from the Clearly Beautiful Flower Stamp Set which I had embossed with clear embossing powder.

I stamped the flower image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers.

I stamped the dragonfly from the Clearly Beautiful Dragonfly Stamp Set on Metallic blue paper with Stazon ink.

Several gems finish my card. Happy Spring!!
