lawnscaping challenge #102 - distress addicts

good morning!
today is a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! and it's definitely one of my FAVORITE challenges - distress addicts!!

you can use any of your distress products, or you can just distress your card to make it look rough or aged! i decided to use my distress inks and markers! 
and i also broke out the brand new Gleeful Gardens stamp set on my card! eeek!! LOVE that one!

i used a piece of computer paper for a mask and used peacock feathers and tumbled glass to create the sky. then i dropped a little water on top! 
when that was done, i moved the mask over the sky and then used shabby shutters and mowed lawn to create the grass!

the mushrooms were watercolored with distress markers and then i popped up the large one for some dimension!
a few enamel dots and a strip of washi, and the card was done!
i really LOVE how bold the card is! it makes me happy!
