Clarity Challenge - In the garden

First I stenciled the wall in the background.  I masked off the bottom area and brushed over lightly with espresso then used espresso again through the stencil. 
I then stamped the wrought iron bench and coloured in parts of it with a fineliner.
Using a variety of stamps I stamped the greenery along the bottom of the wall and the wrought iron tree.
For the lawn I brushed over with lettuce ink and used the end of a small stamp to create texture with 2nd and 3rd generation pesto ink.
The flowers in the foreground were stamped with pesto and coloured in using promarkers.  I wanted them to be fairly muted so didn't bleach out the lettuce ink but coloured straight over it.  I used some glamour dust and gems on the flowers to add extra texture.  The glitter looks a bit blobby in the photo but sparkles nicely in real life!
