Stamp Something 'Brown' Challenge
This weeks challenge at Stamp Something is to use brown on your card. I was going through some of my older stamps yesterday when I saw this one and remembered how much I used to love using it, so I inked it up using a Sepia inkpad and added some Basic Grey papers. I have used a few different stamps on the background card and around the image and lots of Distress Inks. The punches are from EK Success and Leone Em and the pearls were coloured with Copics to match the card colours.

Supplies
Stamps: Stampington + Co - Santa, Hero Arts Text, Penny Black - Swirl
Tools: Copics to colour pearls, Primas, Cuttleug, EK Success Punches, Leone Em Punch, Distress Inks, Pearls
DP: Basic Grey
