Make My Monday Challenge

Over at Make My Monday they are asking for us to use our two favourite colours which up to a point could be difficult because I have so many 'favourites' especially when used together as a combination.  I am often drawn to autumnal colours so have made this card using a great tiger stamp by Sheena Douglass and of course it is basically orange and brown.  Background was made using a distress embossing folder on kraft card, inked with a darker brown and gilded with gold wax.  The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured using Inktense pencils - a couple of leaves from the same stamp set were stamped, heat embossed and gilded.

Background - Crafter's Companion embossing folder
Image and leaves - Stamp set from Sheena Douglass
Sentiment - computer generated
Image - coloured using Inktense pencils
