Can it be spring?

I believe so. I hear the birds making a racket, the sun is out at the long last, and soon there will be leaves in the trees and flowers and grass everywhere. But not yet! That's why I felt drawn to the springy colors and making a flower themed something.

It is also heavily layered - ink through stencil, stamping, texture paste through stencil, some washi tapes and cut out stamped circles. Finally topped by a flower that was created with texture paste and infusions.
Here are the punched shapes on my desktop. (Notice the colorful paper? It's my desk cover, to be used afterwards for backgrounds.)

And here they are ready. I gathered all the materials in one picture so you can get an idea how I made them.
