Sparkles for Spring

I was recently inspired by this project idea and decided to create my own based on this design.

I started with some fun papers from My Mind's Eye called Quite Contrary. I used Tickle-Me-Turquoise to paint my circle stamp. I really like how the Shimmerz paint filled in around the edges of the stamp providing more definition to each circle. Then, using Celery, I painted the edges of the butterfly for a distressed and sharper pop. Finally, I chose three polka dots on the butterfly wings to paint with Hi Ho Silver.

I am proudly displaying my little happiness of spring on the mantle in my living room.
It must be was 70 degrees and sunny here today! Do you have a little happy in your spring?
