Morning all. Are you ready for a new challenge. Well we may just have the thing for you over at Cardz4galz. We want to see shades of Brown on your cards. I may have lied in my title (it's getting to be a habit). I only used a couple of shades of brown and then watermarked my card with versamark. Although the different pressure on my stamp each time does make the shades appear slightly different.
I was at a loss as to where to go with this card. Then I discovered that I have an embossing powder called coffee and the rest just fell into place. Well, I say fell into place. The idea was there but this is about the fourth attempt at getting it right. My stamp is from a brilliant set called Coffee with a Splash from Altenew. I'm pretty obsessed with their stamps and I love this whole set. My hubby will be set for coffee themed birthday cards for years - coffee being his one vice.
What do you think.
I couldn't find any brown card to mat my panel onto so I used vintage photo distress ink to colour some paper. I'm quite pleased with the result. It's the first time I've done the watermark thing with the versamark - unless you count the three previous failures. I don't think it will put me off. I like it.
Please pop over and play along. I promise the Galz have a varied selection of inspirational cards for you.
Thanks for reading.
