Forgotten Friday 45- Red and Brown

Hi folks, it's Friday again, and that means that it's time to rummage through your crafty stash to find something neglected and make a project with it. This week, I'm giving you a colour challenge again, if you would like to take up the option, and I've gone for non-Christmassy items, as twice a month is often enough, thank you very much!

I've been rummaging through my Stamp Camp stamps, I have some beauties, and the two that I have chosen for this project are no exception. I bought these when I went to the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight, one in the Autumn, and one from the show previously, in May. I love all of the Stamp Camp stamps that I have bought, but I seem to buy them, and forget about them. Anyway, I stamped 'Side Face' onto Kraft card, and coloured it with Polychromos pencils. This stamp came out so well, just with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I created a piece of background paper by spritzing white card with Distress reinkers and water, then stamping a fabulous leafy stamp over the top again with the same Versafine ink.
I made a flower by spritzing some handmade paper with the reinker solution and some gold Perfect Pearl spray, before cutting the shapes out. I really like to put these brass rings in the middle, and drop seed beads into Glossy Accents for the centres.
I'm going to leave the card without a sentiment for now, and when I need a card for someone special, I'll put the right words on before I send it to the recipient. It's been lovely to just make something for fun today. Why don't you have a look through your stamps and other crafty supplies. If you do make something, post a link in my comments, and I'll pop along to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
 
EDIT: Following a couple of enquiries about how I made the flower in my comments today, I thought I'd just pop back to let you know what the die was that I have used. It is the Peony Nestability die. Hope this helps.

Love everything about this card. You have coloured the image beautifully. I have a load of photographic stamps, but I never make them look as good as that. I love that idea for the flower centre too. It works really well. Kate x

I'm so glad you got these beautiful stamps out to work with at last Judith because the result is fabulous. Love what you've done with the face. The soft touches of colour are lovely and I do like that leafy background too.

A gorgeous card Judith. Not sure that I liked this weeks colour challenge though (I was out of my comfort zone), but here is my contribution this week.
