I stamped the Elephant tree with Versamagic inks, and nothing else needed to be done. The other images were stamped with Versafine and coloured with Inktense pencils and a fine waterbrush. I decided to skip backgrounds except for the turtle.
This turtle is my favourite of these cards, I love the colours and the bubble background that is from CB. To make the background subtle and light -but detailed- I inked the stamp using ink blending tools and Distress inks in Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint. I guess another option would have been second generetion stamping, but I always have trouble deciding where to lay the "extra" first stamp (wouldn't like to throw it away...) and I think I would have lost part of the detail.
