Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Slight Grunge in Sepia Tones

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was this slightly grunge-type project in sepia tones.

Having been asked recently for some more ‘generic’ designs, this one fits that brief.

My colour combination was Pecan Pie, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

Using the splat image from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set and the leaf from the Inked & Tiles Stamp Set, the background piece is stamped.

Using a Blending Brush, the edges are given a touch of extra colour for a slight grunge effect.

The banner pieces are cut using the Nested Essentials Dies, but by drawing around the edge shape, rather than cutting them out. Another leaf is stamped onto the Very Vanilla shape and given a touch of grunge before the pieces are layered together.

Go To Greetings is the Stamp Set that provides the sentiment. This is cut out and stuck to the banner.

A length of coordinating Pecan Pie ribbon is stuck to the back of the banner before the whole piece is stuck to the project using Dimensionals.

Finally, some Classic Matte Dots in Very Vanilla are added.

Happy crafting
