Wings and spring

This week's color scheme over at Color Throwdown I found both  springlike and romantic, so I took the opportunity to make a card that could be used for an anniversary or a wedding as I don't have an such cards in my stash right now.

I used DIs and gelatos with water to color the image, some WoS to add sparkle (not visible here) and a sentiment that would fit the occasions mentioned above. I used my own cut stencil to make the cloudy sky and a flower stamp to make the flowery ground. The stamp with the two birds is from Whimsy Stamps. I used a Tom Ho,tz die for the bow and added a pearl.

This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #441
Whimsy Stamps - #94 Anthing Goes with a twist of Spring
Cut it Up - #121 Wings

I too have this adorable stamp, and just today I tought to use it! :D (But I haven't done) Love the cloudy sky you inked with your handmade stencil, it seems really soft and the sweet border of flowers matches it so well! Cute 3D bow, too!
