A Country Garden for You

This card features a High Hopes image (Country Garden) and some favorites  The image is colored with Twinkling H20;s, including Playful Peony, Pink Anthuriam, and Cedar Wood.  Another fun technique is to ink the embossing folder - in this example, with SU Garden Green.  It is a large image, so I used the Outside the Box technique, cutting part of the image so it extends beyond the main rectangle.
HH image, pastels:
"5" - 5 layers: base, mat, embossed layer, green bg, image:
My style - layers, often with embossed bg; Favorite - embossed bg - that is a folder I have had a long time; favorite inks - H20 - also in my stash for a few years!:
Tutorial - outside the box:
Stamps and flowers:
