Tilda Sepia Style!

Hi Everyone

Hope this post finds you all fit and well.  Another cold few days here and we even had a flurry of snow which didn't last more than a few hours much to my children's disappointment!

Today I would like to share with you a card with a new colour technique for me!  I recently had a go in an earlier post at colouring black and white or greyscale as it's sometimes called.  I enjoyed trying that so thought I would give Sepia colouring a try next!  I found on the net a couple of different colour lists for using Promarkers and decided to try this set of colours first.  I don't usually give a colour list but I am going to tell you what they are so that when you see the card using the next set you can see the difference (if any lol)  Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone, Pastel Beige & Satin

Here is what I used to create this card.  The Image is called Halo Tilda and I stamped this and the sentiment using a Memento Cocoa Ink Pad.  The Card Blank is a 7" Square.  I used a couple of different shades of Bazill Basics Card for Base/Frame Layers and the Patterned Papers are from the LOTV Krafty Christmas Paper Pack.  I cut the Flourishes using my Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish Die and to finish I added a Satin Bow and Brown Pearl Gems.  I am pleased with the results of this little trial!

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

Thank you for once again visiting my blog.  I would like to welcome my new followers, its lovely to have people join my little world!  I hope you will leave me a message and let me know what you think of my new technique!  Hope to see you again soon.
