Autumn Coloured Distress ink card

Hello again I like to try different styles and ideas for cards, so today's cards is different to what I usually do. But I thought it compliments  the stamped image beautifully.
For this card I used a range of stamps I have. There are Tim Holtz stamps
swirl stamps. The main image is called wonderland  by Molly Harrison
The background was created with Tim holtz distress inks
Dried Marigold and Aged mahogany. I also mixed some perfect pearls in gold with some water and put in to spray bottle. Sprayed whole area then added a few drops to the distressed card. Dried the card using my heat gun and then ironed the card to make it flat again as when you add water and heat the card tends to curl a little. Then Istamped background card with all different stamps with distress inks and other ink pads i had to hand used blacks,brown and the aged mahogany.
The image was coloured using copic markers
