Toadstool .....

I used a white card blank as the base for this card .....

I cut a matt from 300gsm smooth hot press watercolour card and applied some washes of watercolour paints in yellows and greens.... wanted a subtle effect ....

I stamped the mushrooms stamp (AAll & Create) in Versafine sepia ink over the watercolour background. I then stamped the mushrooms section in Versafine Clair acorn ink on white card and trimmed out the mushrooms. These were then coloured with watercolours in muted red and sepia. The mushroom caps were then treated with Glossy Accents and put to one side.

The word 'Toadstool' was also stamped again in Versafine Clair acorn, trimmed out and edged with brown Versamagic chalk ink. I then used some background stamps and used spiced marmalade, lucky clover and fired brick Distress Oxides.

The mushrooms and word were then mounted on foam pads as shown. I added some more stamping of stars (tim Holtz), some punched paper strips (coloured with fired brick Oxide and water), some green self adhesive numbers and letters, a couple of brass brads and a rabbit paperclip.

The whole thing was then matted on black card and applied to the card base to finish.
