For this mat I used only Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Because I used a grey backing card this time I stamped the leaves onto thick white card and used old book pages for the flowers, the same as the orange twist sample shown in the magazine. Again my chosen embellishments are Idea-ology but I would recommend that you have a good look through your stash for any other metal embellishments, old buttons look fabulous too.
