Crafty Ann's Challenge No 23

Another fortnight has come around and it's time for another Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog challenge.  The topic this fortnight is "monochromatic".  I decided to go out of my comfort zone and decided to go for shades of brown.  I used Crafty Ann's bird on a blossom perch and printed the image onto some of Crafty Ann's papers, Abstract 2 Earth Tones and then used a mixture of browns from the Abstract 2 Autumn Tones and Earth Tones for the backing mounts.  The bird I have decoupaged up three layers.  The branch I coloured in with Promarkers and highlighted a few areas Promarkers.  The card is finished off with some sticker strips, skelton leaves, card candy, ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's, butterfly die-cut and some decorative ribbon trim.

This card fits the following challenges:

Lots to do - Butterflies and insects
Gingerloft Challenge - Anything goes
2 Sisters - Monochromatic
Crafty Catz - Paper Piecing
Stamping Vacation - Fountain of Youth
Stamping Vacation - Animal applause - anything with a beak

Hi Kym I am thrilled to bits that you have entered this beautiful card into both challenges at OSCC and Stamping Vacation, that image and colours are so gorgeous, thank you so much for sharing this with us.

I am sorry I haven't got in touch yet but please bear with me I am trying to play catch up at the moment and with things as they are at the moment it is proving a little difficult.
