First sepia card.

It's the weekend, at last, and what busy week it has been.  As some of you will already know the lovely Sarah Hurley shall be on our screens on Create & Craft demoing Letraset goodies, details of the shows can be found here on Sarahs blog.  Sarah asked us for some new samples to spruce up her on screen work area, and I thought I would try a sepia card after being inspired by the last show I watched Sarah doing.
I have became slightly obsessed with sepia, and can't believe how good it looks using only 5 colours.  I used Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Putty and Tan and simply alternated the combination of them on this Saturated Canary digi stamp. I also popped some tiny pearls in her hair to make her a wee bit more glamorous.

Fancy Digi Stamp from Saturated Canary
Coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Bazzill Basics card
Sentiment from a Kanban set
Ribbon, flatback pearls, card candi and card blank from stash.
I hope you can tune in on Sunday and Monday and maybe learn some new tricks xx
