Crafty Pad Challenge 15

The theme for the challenge was Spring so soft colours with the promise of warm days to come.
I chose Faith Face and wanted to something a little different so it is titled 'Faith in the Clouds'.
First I chose the main background paper a deep blue with varting shades of blue in it. Then I chose a pale blue to contrast with it. The script paper was next as the sentiments fit in well with the theme. I used artist chalk to colour some watercolour paper in pale blue. I used some blue stamp ink for the face and then created the clouds. I did this by tearing paper and then using chalk over the torn edges. (I learnt this on Papercraft Junkies site.)
I used different shades of blue for the clouds and used some torn paper that has swirls over it to frame the image. A sequin butterfly offers the promise of Summer as do the leaves in the top right, whilst the flower is in the soft pink of Spring blossoms.
The sentiment of Thank You was created on word using art words.
