I love this set from Penny Black (sprigs). There are at least 3 different options for leafy branches. All you need to do is change your shades of green or brown to get a very effective look from the top of a card or the side. We used the delicate hanging vine twice on the card. We inked it lightly first with Pear Tart ink and then Bamboo (Momento Inks). We only inked the longest trail one time so the vining framed the bench. The bench die cut is from Impression Obsession. This is a very nice, simple park bench. The bottom of the card was inked with Peeled Paint very lightly and then Mowed Lawn around the edges (Distress Inks). The grass cluster stamp was stamped in the Bamboo.

The grass edger die at the very bottom of the card is from Frantic Stamper. This is a cute, very tiny grass edging when you just want to add a simple visual lift to the bottom of a card. The flower die is from Joy Crafts. We did use a small ball stylus and we textured the flower-head from the backside. We added dots of colour on the front side and then blended with a waterbrush. I think we're all ready to sit out on a bench in the sunshine and enjoy the warmth of the day. Let's enjoy spring while it lasts.

That bench looks very inviting - maybe the warmer weather will come soon, and we can enjoy sitting on it! That trailing vine is interesting - love how you've inked and used it!
