Inked the background with spiced marmalade and broken china distress oxide inks, also used walnut stain, spiced marmalade and faded jeans  to stamp the trees, poppies and moon, they stamped very well, this was the first card I have used the oxides on and I was impressed.
Stamped the fairy inn and the stones with black sparkle embossing powder, then coloured with the oxide inks. The birds were stamped with black onyx versafine ink.
