Textured Shrooms

Morning and this is the second of two DT posts today.We have a new "Masculine Card" challenege at A Place To Start and I used my new stamp set Textured mushrooms from Rubber dance that I won on a FB forum challenge.
I stamped the mushrooms onto oxide swiped cardstock and old dictionary pages,for the background I used one of my eco/boiled pages I made,a couple of strips of dictionary page added and the bottom of the card was made with black gesso,sand,baked earth EP. egg shells and pencil shavings-added a little metal snail to one of the shrooms-I mad this card for my sons Bithday next week.An added bit of doodling round the edges to finish.

Oh! I love 'shrooms! Love to look at them, love to eat them. Had some last night, in fact. They're very good for you! This is very interesting to look at with all the texture and earthiness, fitting for the mushrooms. Love how you used the dictionary paper with them. What a great card!
