Lavinia Stamps Challenge 1 "Anything Goes"

There are some great examples from the Lavinia Stamps design team for the Challenge 1 this month. Take a look here for some inspiration.

Here is my entry for the challenge, using only Lavinia Stamps.

Lavinia Stamps used :
Spring Trees, Horse and foal, Creeping Vine.

I began with a Scene-Scapes card no. 013 for the background and stamped the spring trees using distress embossing ink and embossed them with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder (Denim Lilac Aurora). The horses are stamped with black Versafine ink and the vine leaves stamped randomly using milled lavender distress ink. I added some 'ground' for the trees and horses to stand on with a victorian velvet distress marker.

A simple card to make.
