Fairies in my garden

Have finally managed to sit down and spend some time playing with my new stamps, and having a well needed practice with my brayer!
I love playing with inks and started off by brayering the background with big and juicy in waterfall. I then ripped paper to create the mountains in the background and went over with the brayer again. Keeping the paper on I used cut and dry foam to edge the mountain with black versafine, to give them some definition. I then decided to brayer over the mountains again with Tim Holtz tattered rose ink. I decided to make the forefront of the picture look like water so I covered the lower half up and added versafine ink this time to the bottom of the mountains, to create what I hope looks like a shore. I used Lavina Stamps Fairy Castle, Fairy and toadstools along with Clarity's small foliage stamp and large oak tree.
