SCD - Teal & Brown



What no Stampin'! would not have worked with these cuttlebug folders.

SCD have for their third week of postcard sized/shaped pieces a colour challenge, the main colours on the piece must be Turquoise/Teal and Brown. There is also some candy to be won this week! Did not take long to see how to respond to this weeks challenge, thanks to last Friday's metal lesson and a fantistic piece in Craft Stamper! Great fun to do and a pleasing result.

Chocolate coloured metal,run through the bug with the owl embossing folder trimmed and a patten roller run along the rough edge. Steam Alochol ink gently rubbed over the image removes the colour coating and leaves a hint of its own colour behind. Teal coloured colour core card run through the bug and then rubbed down to show the two tone. Bits for vellum run through the bug to cut out flowers. Card and flowers stuck to postcard sized chipboard, metal attached with grommets two of which were threaded with fibres as a finishing touch.
