Spring Inspired

Hello!  I was playing this weekend with Glimmer Mists and some new stencils and stamps.  I ended up with so many fabulous backgrounds and figured I better finish one of them.

I just purchased these jumbo journalling tags from Ranger and wanted to play with that as my surface.

 I actually started with a stamped background with the fine print painted in white paint to create a resist.  After that dried I stenciled the numbers using crackle embossing paste. (I had to let that dry) 

 Then the fun began with dripping, spraying, and splattering the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist over the surface.  I kept trying various effects until I got the background I wanted. 

 Then this morning I added the sentiment, circles, flowers and dragonfly to finish it off.
