'Mir'acle Toadstool garden (by Miranda)

Hello there,

I am happy to be here again and having fun playing with these wonderful stamps!
I did use the beautiful' Toadstool Garden' stamp. What a beautiful design and so many things to see......I also will play with the other huge stamp called 'Folk Art' but that will be another post.

I did use it as a background stamp. First I did make an inky background using Distress inks and a bit of salt. Always like the texture of that.......
I embossed 2 fragments of the stamp using clear matt dull embossingpoeders in each corner. 
With some darker blending it really pops out and comes alive........then some stamping using some matching Memento colors.

There is a light spot in the center of the card and I thought it would be great to use a matching stamp....of course some toadstools too from another great sheet' Autumn Poppy'
I did color the toadstools with color pencils and some accents with an acrylic marker.
The sentiment is also from  the Toadstool garden stamp.

Here it is.......

Well, this was my first take on this stamp, next week there will be more!
Thanks for your visit, hope you did enjoyed it and till next time,


  1. Hello Miranda
    Such beautiful work...thank you for technique details!
    Love Marg

  2. What a great idea to use bits of the Toadstool Garden in the background Miranda, and the toadstools look fabulous as the focal image and I think they are some of my most favourite stamps and your colour choices with the autumnal tones and the touch of blue is gorgeous. A stunning card! x

  3. Wow, this looks great in these beautiful autumncolors, Miranda.

  4. WOW!! Amazing works with that toadsool!!!!
