Spring for Country View

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Spring




I started by making my own background with some  PanPastels


I then set the Pastels with some cheap hairspray and using some green ink stamped my image
a few times also using second generation stamping to give a little depth.
 I then added a couple of butterflies, some birds and a sentiment


I am entering this into
Crafting by Design "Anything Goes"
Inspiration Destination "Anything Goes"
Simon Says "Anything Goes"
Stamps and Stencils "Spring is in the Air"
