Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge : February

Time to post my entry for the Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge for February.

This month's verse is:
February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again
and the challenge is to include a heart and cherub.

The heart and cherub were a bit of a challenge but I found a nice gothic cherub picture on the internet holding a heart. I think it matches my sombre, rainy lake scene. I have edged the verse with worn lipstick distress ink to tie in the colour of the heart.


Lake scene stamp from Stamp-It Australia : Luscious Landscapes stamped using watering can archival ink.
The background is iced spruce and weathered wood distress ink with water added to make it look a bit gloomy like a rainy day.
