Forest Toadstool

 I spent an enjoyable afternoon yesterday playing with this beautiful Forest Toadstool stamp and of course others as well to build up a mystical scene.I must say the time just flew by 😉.  I started by stamping the toadstool onto a square of white card and again onto a masking sheet so that I could fussy cut to use this as a mask when colouring the background.  Colours were blended using soft brushes and also some ink was applied through a stencil and then the mouse, snail and various foliage stamps were used.  Finally I peeled off the toadstool mask and coloured the toadstool with pencils.  I can never make up my mind about adding sentiments to this type of card and for the moment I've left this one without although I might just add a small, simple one before I send it to anyone.

Stamps - all from Lavinia, as was the stencil in the background.
Toadstool coloured using Polychromos pencils
Various Distress inks used to colour background
