Coffee and Cream at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning and a Happy New Year! I trust you are feeling ready for the new year when you read this! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not only is it the first day of 2017, but it is the first Sunday of the Month and time for a new Challenge over at Stamping Sensations! This month's theme is...........

********Coffee and Cream********

As the title suggests we want to see lots of browns and creams this month..........
I've chosen a rose from Honey Doo Crafts, stamped in versafine sepia and coloured with Zig Clean color pens. This was mounted onto some Indigo Blu mega flake called Chocolate box and a brown layer. The base card was stamped with a Crafty Individuals stamp (CI-430) again in the versafine ink. A little brushed corduroy Distress Ink was dusted around the edges.

The prize this month is a selection of Mixed media goodies , and the top three will also be receiving a little prize from us!
Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork. Conventional rubber/acrylic stamps and digital images are acceptable, but pre-coloured digital images and toppers are not. And please note: if we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

We do hope you will be able to join in this month. Do pop over to the challenge blog where my talented teamies have produced some amazing artwork in these fabulous colours.
