I started with creating the background with dark sprays, Gelato and stamps. I added layers of browns and black so the background will be really gloomy.
Then I tore the paper and tucked under the tears flowers I cut from a patterned paper. The flowers seem to burst through the dark cracks. I also added a shine effect with yellow Gelatos to complete the look.
I added a white and bright sentence with a white gel pen and doodles swirls and dots around it and in the letters to add to the happy feeling.

Have fun creating!
