Cream and Brown



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that mans a new challenge at Allsorts our our Jo has chose a colour challenge for us this week of 'Cream and Brown. Our sponsors are Crafty Ribbons and A Passion for Stamps.

I really enjoyed making this one using Graphite 45 DP's, a really old wood mounted Judikins wheat stamp which I stamped twice and uses a stencil and tea dye ink to randomly sponge the background. The die cut wheat is made with an Obsession Impression die and some ribbon and lace to embellish.


And another I equally enjoyed making using Ruth's Clematis Montana image..............artistic licence when it comes to the colours ! Graphic 45 DP's again, some stenciling in the background and paper piecing the image with a touch of Wink of Stella on the leaves.

Happy weekend all.

  15. Beautiful cards, Brenda! I love your Graphic 45 papers! I have been drooling over some of their papers - I just discovered G45 - haven't got any yet because it's so expensive. I love how your stamp and die cut coordinate so beautifully in the first card - the lace looks so pretty! Beautiful paper piecing in the second card! Hope you have a great weekend!
