Double D - Tan Neutrals with Texture

Dear Ones~

This time over at Double D the challenge is to use Neutrals With TextureKrafts, tans, creams, beige etc - this is all about the 'Tan Neutral Family"...touches of black or white are okay. 
Texture can be anything. And we have been provided with this wonderful Mood Board for inspiration.
Here is my example:
 I couldn't wait to break out my Oxides for the background on this card. I used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and just did the Smooshing Technique. I love the organic look. Then I got out my corrigator and ran a piece of kraft paper through, after which I tore and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I also distressed the flowers and leaf die cuts from the SU Botanical Builder Framelits die set. I found a piece of wide burlap-y ribbon in my stash for an embellishment. Lots of texture going on here.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Sandy Beach & Ivory Card
GKD Kraft Card
Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Inks
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
SU Botanical Builder Framelits
Ellen Hudson Wild Garden Die
GKD Fabulous Flowers Stamp for Greeting

  1. Beautifully created from the stunning background to all the fabulous details. Love the flowers and the entire design!!!

  2. Love the 'burnt' edge look of the flowers on here Judy, amazing results and gorgeous card.xx[aNNie]

  3. I love the gorgeous background, outstanding! The white flowers and leaves with the edges touched with tan color are just perfect for this mood board. You have done very well my dear.

  4. GORGEOUS! Love that fabulous oxide background and how you inked the edges on your flowers! Beautiful creation ... awesome inspiration!

  5. Ah ha.... you found your paper crimper. I love that you just used a small piece and tore around the edges. The background looks like expensive marble and I always admire people who can put elements askew on a card and make it look fabulous. Every time I try it just looks like I had one too many glasses of wine. Great job.

  6. Beautiful, Judy! Those oxide inks make such beautiful designs. I haven't used my paper crimper in forever.

  7. That DOX background is superb, Judy, and all the other elements tie right in. The fact that it's in neutrals makes it all really work beautifully.

  8. Holy cow, that oxide ink background is amazing! Wow! So much fabulous texture and contrast in this pretty and earthy design. I love it, Judy!

  9. Beautiful card Judy! Your choice for the background is perfect and those flowers are just gorgeous on the kraft corrugated paper!

  10. There are so many awesome details for the eyes to take in on this card, including that corrugated piece along with all the great sponging and texture! Beautiful!

  11. Lots of layers and textures, this looks amazing! I love that SU Builder set and meant to buy it myself lol your sponged flowers are perfect! Your background is simply FAB (I still haven't bought any of those either--so out of the loop lol) Love your creation, Judy!
