First cards of 2013 – Chocolate Tones

I took a little crafting break over Christmas but I’m back in full swing now.

Three cards with brown tones.  The first is for my sister-in-law and her new fiancé.  The image is from Sassy Cheryl (Delivery with a Kiss) and it’s coloured with the following Promarkers: Tulip,  Buttercup, Mustard, Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Burnt Umber and Umber.  I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl – Anything Goes

Sketch Saturday – Week 239

I Love Promarkers – Monochrome



The next card has an image of Saturated Canary, again coloured with Promarkers.  It is inspired by the song ‘Breath of Life’ by Florence and the Machine, from the move ‘ Snow White and the Huntsman’.  You can see the video for the song here.  I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge, Song Inspiration!



The last card is very different, even though it has a similar colour scheme.  No digi stamp  in this one; I used some die-cut decopage that I’ve had in my stash for ages.  It’s ‘Wellington’ Bear by DoCrafts, and so are the papers.  The ’70’ is cut with my Cricut, using the ‘Quarter Note’ cartridge.  The ribbon is from a box of Butler’s chocolates.  My mother always keeps them for me from any boxes she gets.  🙂

I am entering this card into the Cut it Up Challenge – Out with the Old
