New stamps

Last time I went to Honeypot Crafts I spotted a stamp that Phill had used. He said it was from the Wild Aspapragus set by My Mind's Eye. I asked him if he could get me some and he rang, there and then to order them. I popped in last Sunday to pick them up and this is my first play with them. I used distress inks in antique linen, tea dye, vintage photo, spiced marmalade and dried marigold on the top one. I used a white gel pen to highlight a few bits, but I went a bit mad!
This second one I used the same colours except for the spiced marmalade and dried marigold, and I added a few dots of gold glitter glue. Main images were stamped with dark brown chalk ink on the first and vintage sepia versafine on the second. Not sure which works best.
