Magic Happens

No more snowflakes please; I want to see some spring flowers! To make my card I used a piece of newspaper as my background panel. I then added swipes of gesso. Over the dried gesso I added antique paper distress stain. My floral stamp (Serendipity Stamps) is a form of watercolor using direct to stamp watercolor crayons. The sentiment is also from Serendipity.
My card is being entered into these challenges: Serendipity Stamps challenge -- sheet music or news print ; and Great Impressions -- spring celebration.
