Craft-Room Challenge

Quite a few changes happening at Craft-Room Challenge!   Julia is closing her online shop, everything is 40% off so might be worth a visit.   As this is the last challenge Julia is sponsoring and anticipating that a lot of stock will sell quickly an Andy Skinner stamp plate 'Batik Garden' has been reserved as the prize.  

In honour of the prize I've used that same stamp plate as a sample this week.   The challenge this time set by yours truly is a colour one, looking to see you use Brown, Orange and Cream for your creations.   I've used brilliance inks on cream card layed in a brown card.   The die cut is a new one from Memory Box, no idea where the flowers came from they seem to have been in my embellishment box for ever.   Orange coloured gems complete the colour pallet.

This was my first sample and felt the need to share it with you.   The base card is the same brown card stock.   In a local craft shop found some wonderful wide lace in cream makes a perfect background here, held in place by two Orange flock covered brads.   A nestie cut topper stamped in brown with Inkadinkado 'Tin Can Mail' Persimmon DI inks blended round the edges.   A little orange netting sits behind the image on the right of the card, some orange ribbon runs down and over the image.  The flowers bottom left are topped by brown lace rolled to make flowers and stitched together with orange sequins on the middle.

I love colour challenges so thought it would be fun to see what you all make of one inspired by a certain chocolate treat.   As always the team have come up with some stunning samples, and we are all pleased to say that Craft-Room Challenge will continue and we have some terrific sponsors lined up.
