There is a story behind this card that I would love to share with you.
On feb. 26th I did a workshop at Doe@Ding by Anita about coloring images with Distress ink... and here is my first, with Distress inked colored image. 
The big brown background is selfmade with a Tim Holtz Technique. I used the stamp from Crafty Secrets Floral Art, Antique linnen, Tea dye and Vintage photo.

Stamp is forever Friends easter from Doe@ding
Nesties round and petite scalloped circles round
Creatable by Marianne Design and swirls too
Design Papers by Forever Friends from Doe@ding
Rose is made from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals (technique by Anita)
Lace (colored with tye dye)  from Doe@ding
Used inks:
Antique linnen, Tea dye and Wild honey and tattered rose for bear.
Weathered wood and tattered rose for bunny
Wild Honey and dried marmalade for chick and butterfly
Clouds with selfmade cloudtemplate and tumbled Glass, Stormy sky and Chipped Sapphire. 
Grass is Shabby shutters and peeled paint.
The rose is made from White bazzil and stamped with Tim Holtz text stamp and colored with
Dried marmalade, spiced marmalade and wild honey.
Text stamp is from Crafty Secrets Floral art and colored with same inks as the rose.
