Sepia Tones

Hi everyone, what do you think of when you see the words 'Sepia Tones'?  The challenge this week at TGIF Challenges is 'Playing With Sepia Tones'. 

I immediately thought of all things vintage, old photos and a distressed style card.  I did start out making a vintage style card, inking up the edges after distressing them.  But I eventually went with a clean look for my card as I liked this finished look better.

I have used the Healing Hugs stamp set, stamping the flowers and leaves using Soft Suede ink before doing a little fussy cutting.  Did I hear a few groans? These flowers and leaves are perfect for fussy cutting and it gives great dimension to the card.

I stamped the background with the foliage and open leaf images using Soft Suede and Early Espresso ink before adhering the leaves and flowers using dimensionals.  

A small strip of Crumb Cake Designer Series Paper was adhered to the bottom of the Soft Suede card base before the stamped panel was adhered in place.

A few gold sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment were added to finish the card.

Thank you for visiting.
