Shades of Brown
I decided to again enter the Mix It Up Monday challenge at StampTV in which we were challenged to use at least three shades of brown. I must admit I was a bit hesitant about such an assignment but the end results of this card was pleasantly surprising to me. I hope you like what I did too!
For this card I chose images from the Gina K. Designs Flowers Bloom set by Rupa Shevde. I love those silhouette stamps and when this challenge was posted I knew I wanted to use them. I also used dies from the Spellbinder Nestabilities Opulent Ovals set. I lightly sponged on some Kraft dye ink on each oval to give it a bit more dimension.
I incorporated ivory card stock for my card as that was considered a brown according to the challenge post. Other colors I used were Gina K. Designs Warm Cocoa, and Dark Chocolate. Inks used on the card were Gina K. Designs Warm Cocoa, Dark Chocolate and Kraft.
I popped the two layers of oval die cuts and also the sentiment. My ribbon was made using my Craft-DeebowZ bow maker. I love that tool and found it to be the only way I could make a decent bow. I finished by adding some light brown pearl flower gems in each corner of the card.
Here is the inside of the card. I tried to tie the inside and outside designs together. I stamped off the flower image on scrap paper to make it lighter before I added it over the sentiment.
Well, I sure appreciate all who come by and look at what I have added to my blog. I don't know if I will get many more creative things done this week as I am pretty busy these days. Thanks for looking though!
And thank the Lord.....it is warmer. In the middle 70's and so therefore, I finally planted my flowers. I hope the frost is well gone until Fall now.
