Dream in green !

This is my card for the following challenges :

The two main background pieces have been made using a resist technique, which I think is my favourite as it still uses Distress Inks, which are definitely at the top of my list ! I blended some Crushed Olive Distress Ink around the edge then I stamped with Versamark ink. The script stamp is a Stampin' Up stamp called En Francais and the border stamp is from an Elusive Images stamp set. I clear embossed them and then blended some more Crushed Olive over the top. The flowers were cut using a Sizzix Bigz die and I've then blended Crushed Olive over them before glueing them down.

The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp and she's mounted on black card and then on Labels 3 Nestabilities. The white layer has had more Crushed Olive blended around the edge. The word is from a Rubbadubbado set.
My Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities arrived at the week end and I've not had time to experiment yet. I wanted to have a go at the Blended Batik technique but didn't have the right paper to soak up the embossing powder, so had to leave it as just an ink resist effect. Looks like I need to go shopping .....what a shame !
Thanks for looking
