In My Garden ATC's

Hi Crafters,

I have been joining in with an ATC swap at Charmed Cards and Crafts and their latest theme was 'In My Garden'.
This gave me the opportunity to use a set of dies I've been itching to find a project for - Sizzix Funky Foilage.
The deadline has passed for sending them in so I'm safe to share these now.

A close-up of one ATC

I used Distress Oxide inks for the background using the 'smooshing' (technical term, lol)
technique and added crackle paste through a TH flourish stencil. The bee stamp is the smallest one in the new IndigoBlu stamp set that I used the other day on my shaker card. I die cut all the elements of the toadstools and inked them using Distress Inks, then layers them up and arranged them on my moss which comes from Anna Marie Designs. The sentiment stamp is from an Inkylicious set - Dancing in the Rain - which I stamped onto the edge of some card and punched it out using a circle punch. 
I can't wait to receive my swaps for this month.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Unicorn Challenge - #47 Autumn
More Mixed Media - ATG  opt. Brown
