When is the best courting time?

Is that a silly question? You can court anytime and people did. Or did they? Courting used to be seasonal, either in the slow months of winter or else in the short nights of summer. At least where I am sitting right now, that is Scandinavia.
These cards showing Frida Kahlo and the place being South America, perhaps there was no specific courting time. Although in one of the following atc's she is making the remark that she hated when it rained in July - now that might have been the best courting time.

I built these somewhat 3D with paper scraps, washi tape and pieces of cardstock.

Next came the fun part, spraying. I used a sunny yellow and orange colored Distress inks which I sprinkled with cherry Infusions flakes. I just love to see them give out their color in and blend with the ink. Some of them stayed put and created nice little sprinkles on top.

 Then I stamped it with a script stamp and added some diluted gesso highlights. The faces and fans are raised.
It was the BEST courting weather
