Whiff of Joy - A Colour Combo

Yay it's wednesday and time for another Whiff of Joy Challenge this week we have a fab colour combo for you - Brown, Cream and Orange. I decided to give old Herb and inking up as I love him in this soft sepia colour, I have coloured him very lightly with copics, just around the edges of the image and then hilighted some of the details in orange and gone over them with stickles.

I have never distressed paper before but love the look so much I thought I would have a go. I don't have any special tool so just used the edge of a pair of scissors, the result was ok and I will definatly try it again. my papers are Papermania Silk Screened and Bazzill, the punch is MS and the flowers I picked up in my local craft store, there was no make on the bag - sorry.

I am off to take my little Sophie to the doctors this morning, I think she has tonsilitus poor little lamb, just hope she gets better soon as it is her 9th birthday on friday and she is having a disco dance tuition party, i was hoping to learn a few moves myself lol - never mind dancing like your Dad it's dancing like your Mum you need to be afraid of in this house !
Take care peeps and have a great day,
Claire xx

Very intersting to see these traditionally autumnal colours translated to a winter card. Nicely done ;)
