Another month!

It's that time again, well actually yesterday was that time again...just a wee bit late.
What for?
My 365 day calendar. 
Now I started it at the local crop on Sunday but knew it needed something more and had forgotten to take stamps with me.
Anyway...I couldn't find what I wanted so I decided to be very brave and doodle last night whilst watching Vampire Diaries!
This is what I came up with:


As it is March I wanted to use a Spring like theme and I have ended up with my version of tulips.
I have used a variety of green ink pads and my Ranger tool to do the background then sprayed with Glimmer mist's gold and Lime twist.  The flowers I have cut from yellow and white card stock and some I have embellished. 
The doodling I have coloured with watercolour pencils and added a touch of pearl ex powders for glimmer! 
The lettering is from letraset and my cricut machine.
I am really happy with the finished product and love the, in your face, Spring colours....let's just hope we now get the better weather to go with it.
You can see some more calenders here.

And here is February finished:


So what will April bring....I've already got an idea for that one!
