Colour Create - Choclate, coffee & cream

Chocolate, coffee and cream are the colours at Colour Create

This week's challenge has been created by our very own Tab. I know you will agree that Tab makes the most wonderful cards and that her use of colours and stitching is amazing! I always feel that you can tell Tab's cards before looking at the name as she has a unique style and is very much a trendsetter with her creations too. You will always find oodles of inspiration on Tab's blog and very often a funny tale or two!



For this week's extra option we would like you to add some distressing to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.


*******************************

For someone whose favourite colour is brown I found rather strange that I couldn't find any brown/cream papers in my stash!!! Probably because I like them so much I keep using them. I did have brown and cream card so consequently ended up stamping my own backing paper. I used the WOJ image Willow with sunhat and coloured her with distress inks. I distressed the brown card with Basic Grey distressing tools and the cream and around the image with Walnut stain ink.


Materials
BC - White Linen and SU chocolate chip : Image - WOJ - Willow with Sunhat : Ranger distressed re-inkers : Background stamp - Basic Grey & Magnolia : Leone Em branch punch : Brown flowers Papermania : Tool - Basic Grey distressing kit : Rest from stash
