I stamped and embossed the flowers using AB Studio stamps id253 and id254. I then painted them with water downed Distress Inks (Evergreen Bough, Shaded lilac, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Wilted Violet). I then fussy cut them and started on my backgrounds. I used the same distress inks, a couple stencils and stamps and splatters here and there. I then stamped my images onto my art journal spread, and pasted the fussy cut ones down. I decided to make 2 cards instead of a spread... that was just what was calling to me! LOL!!
I added a quote from Tim Holtz Ideology sticker book, "Small Talk". I edge each with Black Soot distress paint, stamped a few butterflies and voila! Done!!
What a fun way to spend a snowy cold May Day!
I am submitting these to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for taking a peek! And I do hope your May day is better than mine!
