Colourful Ferns

I'm enjoying some time off and glad to be having some extra play time.
Here is a simple card I created using this beautiful fern background stamp and some Brushos.

So, I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock, positioned in my Misti. I rubbed it with my Anti-static bag and inked with some Versamark ink, then white heat embossed the ferns.
Using some diluted Brushos and a paintbrush, I added the background colour all around the ferns, adding some dark and light to look like shadows.  I love the way it turned out.
While that dried, I die-cut the sentiment 3 times and glued them together for stability.
I glued the sentiment over the fern bkg and simply mounted that onto a white card base.

Thanks so much for visiting appreciated.
