Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 5 August 2016

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "LET'S GO NEUTRAL" ie white, cream, browns or greys.

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Purple Woods" (this comes in a set with three gorgeous other images).  I printed the image off onto some kraft card and coloured in with tones of brown Promarkers.

The backing papers are from my stash.

I have finished the card off with some animal print ribbon, stamped ticket sentiment, gem, Prima butterfly, frayed hessian, leafy style stamped decoration by Stamps by Chloe (heat embossed onto acetate and glitter added afterwards) and some die-cut flowers made out of parcel wrapping paper finished off with some gorgeous brads from a friend.

 I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I love the way you have made this card completely neutral, even though you used a person image! It works really well.

Love your browns. And I particularly like the color of the cat against them. It pops but very subtly. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week. Good luck.

Hi, Kym! What an intriguing use of images and monochrome technique using this particular color scheme and a feminine image! It is bold and strong, yet so delightfully feminine. Thank you for inspiring me today to use colors and details which don't normally show well together! I love your card!
