The Card Concept #47

Hello All,

We have a new challenge for you at The Card Concept. We have our colour challenge-cream, chocolate, kraft and grey. We also have this fabulous photo to inspire you:



I found this colour combo a tough one but actually ended up making a one layer card using a very old stamp:



I was inspired by the yummy looking cake and decided to use all our colours to colour up my stamped cake.

First off I stamped the cake in rich cocoa ink, then used copics in warm grey, skin white (for the cream) and brick beige (for the kraft). The card base is also cream. I am not the best at colouring but this was fun to make.

My card is 'Clean and Simple' but you can use any style you want-check out here how we define these styles. You can mix them up also. Just have fun!

Our Guest Designer this week is the very talented Lesley, she has stepped out of her comfort zone and gone all Shabby Chic and what an amazing card she has made.

Our DT have all come up with some fabulous cards using all these styles-have a look here, then get inky!

I will add this to:
