Just sepia at My time to Craft

Good Morning blogfriends

And a happy Saturday to you! 
 I can't quite get used to this posting on a Saturday business! Its not that  I mind at all - in fact I like it, it just doesn't take much to confuse me and after the week I just had with blogger and broadband problems I want an easy life!

Todays challenge at My Time to Craft is set by my lovely blogging buddy Pat
 and she has chosen the theme of


I have wanted to use this image for a while now but couldn't decide what to do with it.  When I saw Pats sepia challenge I had an idea that it might just work, instead of making it a typical colourful carousel horse its a vintage inspired card instead.  The image is a digi I won over at digi doodle shop and I decidd to add the sepia tones to the background before I printed it out.  When it printed the shades were very green looking and I matched it up to papers in those shades rather than the typical sepia shades - I really like how it turned out.

This is what I did...

Image-  carousel horse from Digi dodle shop (now closed!)
Coloured with copics and prismacolour pencils and the outershadows added digitally before printing
papers - K and Co
Distress ink - tea dye by Tim Holtz
Die cut flourish - vintage flourish from Mariannes 
Corner - corner part of flourish die
Ribbom - Vintage seam binding from Sam Pooles shop
cherry blossom flowers - memory box die
Heart die cut - Spellbinders
Pearls = Kaisercraft
For you - cut with cricut expression  - gypsy wanderings cart

Gorgeous card Judith with a real vintage feel to it. Great idea to colour the paper b4 printing it. I've just purchased that lush corner die. My not-so-local craft store just got it in and ran a 10% off sale so it had to be mine :) Hope blogger behaves! hugs, Pat K.xx
