Live in the Sunshine

Greetings!  My card today is based on the new release of Kudzu Kafe by Artistic Outpost.  The background was created by stamping various Distress Inks onto a Craft Mat, spritzing the mat with water and sopping up the juicy inkiness to create this rustic background.   All images are from Artistic Outpost and all are stamped with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  A farm scene and old pick up truck are both from the Home plate .  The woman, boy and girl and the "be kind" and "be honest" are all from Kudzu Kafe.  The "Live in the sunshine" sentiment is from The Outpost plate.  I love how you can tell a story by intertwining so many of the stamp images from AO!  Simple embellishments include Copper Liquid Pearls, tan and white Baker's Twine and an Idea-ology Binder Clip and a snippet of Cocoa twill ribbon.  Have you had a chance to stamp today?  Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
