Rustic Succulents Card - Mandy Herring

Hi everyone!
Well can you believe that it's August already.
I am sharing a card today for Paper Rose Studio featuring the gorgeous Cactus Greetings Stamp Set.
I am thinking that the three projects that i share for August for Paper Rose Studio will be more vintage and grungy than my usual cards.
I have been using my time to catch up on some textured backgrounds that Tim Holtz shared on his Facebook lives. There are some great ideas that you can use to create some super grungy and textured backgrounds.
I have stamped out my succulent stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured in with my Copic markers. I have used colours for my pot so that it looks like aged copper.
My succulents are coloured in violets for the under colouring and greyish greens 
The detail in the picture above shows how the Distress Glaze looks when applied to an entire background and then grunge up with distress ink and a distress crayon, Thanks Tim for the great ideas using the distress crayons.
I have cut out the Texture 4 Die, brick wall, in craft card and embossed it with Vintage Photo 
Distress Glaze. My sentiments are stamped onto card and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I have also heat embossed in black the word Beautiful.
Colour chart shows my copic markers used for this project.
