OTWC #27

The Off the Wall Craftiness challenge is a new one for me, but I was drawn to it this week because of the gorgeous colors:



They are so elegant!  So I started with a piece of cream cardstock, printed an excerpt in brown from "The Secret Garden", then overstamped it in this brocade design with Versamark ink and clear embossed it.  Next I sponged on tumbled glass distress ink, then framed the panel in dark brown.  Because the excerpt is talking about the robin that Mary meets, I stamped this pretty little bird in brown ink on aqua cardstock, then cut it out and popped it above my panel.  The sentiment seemed just right for finishing. 

Supplies: cream, aqua, and dark brown cardstocks, Versamark ink and clear embossing powder, tumbled glass distress ink,  Memories Artprint Brown ink, Hero Arts CG102 Antique Brocade, CL380 Truly Appreciated, Inkadinkado #97894
