Where I grew up, old ruins dot the Australian countryside, tiny sandstone cottages abandoned & overgrown, hauntingly beautiful. Each an untold story. I've tried to re create this scene.
I dry embossed the brick background in a light taupe cardstock. Lightly swiped & smudged white acrylic paint with my finger across the raised ridges and into the grooves here and there. When dry, color several bricks with E43 copic marker.
The window `stained glass' is the negative pieces, colored with copics, glossy accents on top, then returned to the window, secured from behind.
Two different die cut grasses on the bottom, with white flowers hand punched and glued randomly onto the stalks.
The cat is colored with copics, glossy accents on top. The trailing vine is 2 greens.
This fits the F4A to use 4 or more flowers, and the MIX19 to smudge the paint around the focal point, in this case the window.

Love how you aged the bricks. Your stain glass window is so cool. Love your vine and butterflies. Your little kitty hiding in the tall grass is so cute. Fabulous card! TFS :0)
