I have played around a little as I didn't have a clue what I was doing and I have made some notes to self as what not to do next time. lol (like make sure there is nothing stamped on the reverse of the image you are using.)

here's what I have used to create my card:
6x6" white base card
Fabriano 5 water colour card
papers from my stash
dies:
tonic: circles
little darlings: fancy rectangles
Stamps:

(not to sure it they are available in digital format)
ink:
memento: espresso truffle
stazon: timber brown
distress ink:
vintage photo, tattered rose, mermaid lagoon, weathered wood, antique linen, walnut stain, pumice stone and forest moss
embellies:
wild orchid roses & blue flowers, blue and cream paper roses, blue stamens
