I began by creating a background using the watercolour ink-smooshing technique and Distress Oxides. I stencilled the raindrops and stamped the flowers and butterflies using Distress Oxide. I die-cut the inky panel with a stitched rectangle and adhered the die-cut birds. I stamped the sentiment and mounted the rectangle on a grey panel and then a white card base.
