3 distress inks, squeezed lemon, barn door and dried marigold. Joanna Sheen stencil for background, Inkylicious stamp and sentiment and Bee Crafty frame. Bit of fussy cutting for the birds.
3 distress inks, squeezed lemon, barn door and dried marigold. Joanna Sheen flower stamps and sentiment. Diluted a bit of white gel pen and painted the leaves on a few of the flowers. 2 old stencils, can't remember where they came from, I've had them years but not really used them until today.

I used an inkylicious stamp for the main part and used distress inks for the background. The strip at the bottom was also and inkylicious stamp and distress inks. I used a brush to blend the inks, I'm finding that I can get a better finish with the brushes, I still get odd spots or blobs using the little sponges or the distress ink tools. I used the grasses for the sides but it was an after thought which didn't quite go to plan, next time I might put a piece of acetate over the top and plan the edge a bit better, I would be able to see the end result without having the problem of not being able to change it if I didn't quite like it.
