More Stamping and Distress Inks

My card today was purely playing time lol.I created the background with distress inks which I then dripped with hand gel,the foxglove image is from Chocolate Baroque and the grass border is from Sheena Douglas-I added glamour dust and liquid pearls.The B.paper is from Bo Bunny which I have just won from Dies to Die For,cardstock from Papermill Direct and the outer stamped border is a texture stamp from Crafters Companion I stamped with versamarker and added mica powder,3-D foam between each layer.I really enjoyed making this card.
