Wishing for Spring on the Prairies

Oh am I ever wishing for spring here on the prairies!  It's more of a blizzard like day yet again...snow, blowing snow...

A different sort of format today...a looo-nnn-gg card *grin*.  Wanted to get as much spring as possible into my picture...birds...flowers...etc.  I've stamped all the images in a water proof ink since I was going to use my Inktense pencils.  When the ink was dry, I added stripes of color with a water brush and then some splatters, again using the water brush.

Next comes three die cut clouds in blue...they're popped up on dimensionals.  And a few random sequins for a wee bit of sparkle...and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. pure luxury white and unknown blue paper
Ink:  Ranger Archival Ink in Watering Can and Jet Black
Stamps:  Dylusions How Does Your Garden Grow and Hero Arts Everyday Sayings
All the other stuff:  Derwent Inktense pencils, Niji water brush, Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Designs Cloudy Sky die and Neat & Tangled Birthday Bash Mix sequins
