Craft Room Colour Challenge

Sadly the Craft Room online store is closing so this is the last challenge that the store will be sponsoring. The randomly drawn winner of this challenge will receive Andy Skinners Batik Garden stamp set. Why not pop over to the Craft Room and grab a bargain as there is a massive 40% discount at the moment.

The latest Craft-Room challenge is a colour challenge and the colours to use are BROWN ORANGE and CREAM.

It's my brother in laws birthday this week so I decided that my DT piece would be his birthday card.
I covered a card blank with dark brown card and then matted various papers and card onto it. I wrapped some bakers twine round the stamped image before attaching it to the card and added a silver fish charm and the sentiment.
The stamps that I used are
Personal Impressions for the main image.
After Midnight Art Stamps for the sentiment.

I'm entering my card into the Just For Fun  Sporty For a Man challenge.

Why not pop over to the Craft Room Challenge blog to see the fabulous work that the rest of the DT has done and to enter your own work.
