Good morning folks, hope you've all been good whilst I've been away lol. Thank you for all the lovely comments you left for me too.
My break turned out to be a bit of a disaster as my poor hubby was taken out of action for 2 days in the middle with a sick bug which fortunately he kept to himself and then my father in law went down with a nasty cold which as he's diabetic was a bit of a nightmare! I've now come back for a rest lol.
We have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday today, chosen by Caz, with the theme of Blue and Brown as she loves colour challenges. I have to say that I love this one as it's one of my favourite combinations and I hope you like what I made.
As you can see, quite a lot of shades of brown here with just a bit of blue as I was aiming for a vintage effect.
To make the background, I wrapped a strip of Tim Holtz Sketchbook tissue tape coloured with Stormy Sky Distress ink round a piece of Paper Cellar paper and stuck this to the card blank. I added a piece of brown crochet lace at the top of the tape.
I die cut a doily with a Papermania die and inked this with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I then added strips of blue and brown Paper Cellar paper to a piece of thin white card, die cut a circle from it and added faux stitching with a pokey tool (Tim Holtz) and a fine brown pen.
I stamped the butterfly (B Line Designs) with Memories Art Print Brown ink and coloured this with various brown Distress inks and cut the image out.
I assembled the card as you see, adding some gem circles and a layered flower with a brown glittery die cut centre to finish.
I'll be round to visit as soon as I can, once I've caught up with all the chores I have to do and will hopefully see you soon.
Thanks to everyone who entered my challenge theme of last week - a stunning array of entries and fab to see so many!
Hugs, Fliss xx
