I was really enjoying playing with Brown and Cream – I consciously tried to avoid it for a long time, after using these colours WAY too much for years :)  So, I carried on, did another Image transfer and made this:-

vintage card b

The background is walnut ink.  I’ve added some Mica flakes to the d/s tape behind the lace and some micro beads to the centre of the embossed flowers.   Hard to see the Mica flakes in the photos but they really glisten nicely, without too much glitter ;)

This went to a lovely friend of mine whose birthday is today, so hopefully, she’ll have received it in the last few days :D  Happy Birthday, Lynne M!

I am the lucky person!!! The card is sumptious - that is how I would sum it up. There is depth to it, amazing texture, it shimmers, it has a vintage, distressed feel to it. Cath, glad you outlined how you made it because guess what, I was going to ask you anyway? Thank you for everything, it all made my day extra special. Lynne x

I love this! Really beautiful image, adn the little bit of text behind: wistful, delicate. A lovely colour combo - you can't say it's just brown & cream, that rust really lifts it and gives it pizazz.

Gorgeous as always. Know what you mean about not using brown and cream for a while. I'm the same, got tired of it and moved onto colour but I was only thinking a few days ago about trying these neutral colours again. This post may tempt me further still haha. Pxx
