The Beauty of Spring!

I've been going outside of the box a lot lately but today I thing I've gone right past the box and onto the floor with this one!  I've never done anything like it before but because this digi image is so open and whimsy and delicate, I didn't want it to be precise and defined so I went from digi image onto white paper to spotting Ranger Distress in in two different colors by hand with a distress sponge.  But before that I thought it would be an ideal look if the shape of leaves were masked off first.  So I played it by ear and went for it and in the meantime, I took loads of photos.  I hope you get inspired to try it and enjoy it as well!  

I have to warn you, It's really messy!  But a ton of fun!
 "removeable" tape runner on leaves
spray from 8 inches to cover pad and combine colors
be sure to get close to leaves to enhance their shape
dry first then remove leaves and add highlight color
