Happy in the Garden

A simple one layer card today, made with a couple of sets of Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy stamps, that I picked up in the sale at Hobby Craft a while ago, one set was half price, the other was reduced by 70%, I do love a bargain!
 I started by heat embossing the garden furniture, using black ink and clear powder, then adding some colour with a variety of Distress Inks, adding shadow under the table and chairs.  I then got busy with an assortment of stamps from the two sets, and lots of shades of green Distress Ink, using first and second generation ink to add depth.  I went round the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink to make the other colours pop and finished with a stamped sentiment, from one of the sets.
Distress Inks used -
Black Soot
Walnut Stain
Peacock Feathers
Tumbled Glass
Salty Ocean
Peeled Paint
Shabby Shutters
Evergreen Bough
Mowed Lawn
Bundled Sage
