Ivy wall playtime

I've had a bit of a play with Inkylicious Footprints on our hearts and  Ivy Wall. I began by stamping it in Memento black onto silk art card, along with the sentiment. I coloured it with distress markers (rusty hinge, antique linen, peeled paint, pine needles, crushed olive and weathered wood) and a water brush. I should probably have used an archival ink, as there was a little bleeding of colour from the black ink, but it isn't obvious. I dusted the rest of the panel with rusty hinge distress ink and ink dusters and popped it on the front of a 5" x 7" card.
I am entering this card into a few challenges

  12. The shading on those ivy leaves & bricks is so so effective & isn't the sentiment apt? I'm so glad you just matted the panel & mounted it straight on to a white card base, anything else would have made it cluttered.
