Garden Bench & Herb pots D-Lites

I've used three die sets here, the garden bench an two of the ornate nestabilities. The paper was from Fabscraps , great that it was double sided, so easy to build the layers.

For this card I used some more of the D-Lites, the window with shutters , the lavender and sage flower pots.
The background was created with an embossing folder from Creative Expressions called Brick Wall.
A technique I like to use here  , the embossing folder is inked with Perfect Medium then put through your die cutting machine. Embossing powder added to the now debossed side , then heated. For this design  it doesn't matter that there is extra embossed powder , no wall is perfect unless it's just been painted.
I used Pumice Stone and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink over the top, just lightly though.
The herbs I coloured with Copics, and added some shading with Distress inks to the flower pots, these I attached with Pinflair glue to give more dimension.
Ok back to work, so for now Happy Crafting.
