Shade of Brown


This wasn't the first card that came to mind when I saw the new challenge for this weeks Everybody Art Challenge Shades of Brown but I decided to use the Stampendous Snow scene.
I used some Sand and Taupe coloured card and used the matching inkpads to stamp the images, the lighter one for the background and the darker one for the oval.

I got out some of my favourite Christmas dies, the Holly from Penny Black but its been cut up to suit my card and Poinsettia Parade by Simon Says Stamp. Forgotton how the Penny Black Holly eats up my adhesive pearls.

My biggest problem was how to photo the card, the way I usually take has become too difficult to do and Hubby reminded me that we had a tripod for the camera but it took several tries to work out how to take photo without have to alter the tripod each time.


Then I wondered if trying to get a straight card was the problem and all my cards could be taken at an angle but I can't get the OCD part of me, it just doesn't look right.

Anyway do hope you can join us this week and pop over to the challenge to check out the team.

Fabulous card Debby - I'm another fan of this stamp.
The photo at an angle actually shows more of the texture of the card and looks lovely.
