Here is the card I've made using 'Potting Shed'. Lots of new garden themed stamps, and this is one of my favorites. 
I used Distress Inks to water color the entire image.



I liked the deckle edge on the piece of water color paper I used, so I left it and carefully tore the paper layers underneath to tie it all together. Kinda rustic...like the potting shed.


The patterned papers are from the Memory Box collection, Rhubarb Tart.

If you want to see more of the new stamps in action, head on over to the IO blog and check out the links to the other DT's blogs. Don't forget to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win IO bucks!

Good luck!
