WS - In My Garden

The Wednesday Stamper theme this week is In My Garden. I no longer have a garden. I did have a walled raised bed but my landlord's workmen keep dumping chemicals over my plants. I got tired of replacing them so I stopped.
I have this stamp Postcard Collage, Jan Weiss by Stamps Happen & it is the sort of thing I would love to see out of my window. I stamped it in Stazon Timber Brown onto some pastel coloured paper, Exquisite by Papermania. I then shaded it carefully with distress inks to give a watercolour effect to it.
