Sorry I'm late

Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #164

For my card I made masks for the grass and the little mushroom and stuck them on, then made a mask/stencil by diecutting a square die from cardstock.

I then sponged Distress inks onto the cardbase (salty ocean and mowed lawn) to make a scene.
I coloured all the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and the snail and big mushrooms I cut out and mounted with one or to layers of foamtape for interest.
Everything is from Lawn Fawn Gleeful garden set and all stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink.
 I coloured on the cardbase to get the least layers, but that means my markers show on the inside of the card a little...i'm fine with that, less fine with one of the masks chewing some of the card up ..:-( hid it, but I know it's there ;-)..oh's all handmade eh? haha

Don't think anyone getting this card will inspect it that closely...
