Alota Rubber Stamps Challenge 29 - Distress It

Hello on this cold and snowy Sunday. The card I'm about to show you I originally made for the Alota challenge 27 - punch happy, but I forgot to post it DOH. But all is not lost as I had distressed this card aswell so here it is ...

Card size - standard A5 (14.8cm x 21cm)
1. Designer paper by K & Company
2.Both stamps by Alota Rubber stamps - Shed and Garden shelf. Coloured with Derwents coloursoft pencils and Sansador. The Ivy leaves and bottle were gone over with Sakura clear gellyroll glaze pen and a silver gel pen was used on the tools.
3. The "branch" at the top was made with Leone Em ash branch punch and the tiny flower punch was one I bought from a local supermarket. The center of the flowers were dotted with Smooch Gold Lame.
4. Down the bottom the daisy flowers were bought off eBay and the foliage was made with Martha Stewarts Branch and Frond punches, and garden twine used for the bow.
The plant labels were made with a template I found on the internet, and with a graphics program I added the flowers and text then hand cut and punched.
5. the edged of the DP and the main image were distressed using Tim Holtz's paper distresser and his Antique linen distress ink.
Thank you for droppin by and to Emily - yes I am still alive LOL, though not crafting as much as I should be :o)
Take care and keep smiling
