A Brown Monochrome

Hi Susan here....

Today at The Stamping Bazaar we have a new challenge and the theme is 'Monochrome', this simply means you use shades of one colour.  For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from the design team call HERE and join in the fun with us.

Now onto my card...

I decided to do another one of the multi folded cards, and I used a brown monochrome colour scheme. This meant I could go from creams right through to browns as they are all the same colour wheel.

This is the inside of my card, the backing paper is from Robyns Fetish, absolutely beautiful papers, the base card and the matting and layering card is from The Paper Mill Direct. I changed the colour of the backing paper from Robyns Fetish to brown to follow my colour scheme and matted all the panels onto a deep brown. My ribbons and pearls are from our local market.

My beautiful image has been designed by our very own Marina Neira and is called 'Josie in a Hat', she is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store. I have used Promarkers to colour the image. I used a corner punch for the topper. My butterflies have been made using a punch and inking the edges before adding glitter and pearls.

The tickets are from Raindrop Echo Designs and I have made the sentiments for the centres.
