I chose my image first, then pulled out a few pieces of design paper and ink colors that I thought matched what I wanted to do with the image. The focal image is from Stamp-It Australia EZMount Stamp Set 69 - Around The World.
I stamped it onto Croygen cardstock - I stamped off first to match the hue of the background design papers. I used a blending tool and Distress ink pads (old paper and forest moss) to add very light shades of color. I edged with forest green.
Next, I cut the pieces to size and layered them onto the card.
