Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I guess I have succumbed to the fact that spring is
in full bloom. Early, but blooming none the less.
I seem to keep reaching for bright, girly colors to
use on my projects. It's like Mother Nature is sending
me subliminal messages or something. I wish she'd quit
doing that.
I do have to admit that when I saw the freebie image for
the Smeared and Smudged Freaky Freebie facebook challenge,
I was hit right away with this idea.  

I immediately knew I wanted to make her gas mask
into a watering can to water the blooms of the apocalypse.
I dotted the background  using Copics to look like falling ash, 
ala Silent Hill.  

This ended up way prettier than I had imagined, 
but it is nice to see what's in my head come to

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
