Tone-On-Tone with a hint of Wood!

Monday, March 31, 2014

Today I'm sharing a card that was recently on the Hampton Art blog and believe it or not... it's quite restrained for me! No funny critters, no eye-balls or spiders dangling from the card, not even a bright colour or splash of glitter to be seen!

I tried to keep the card very subtle by using white on white with only a hint of colour in the wood pieces. The chevron background and sentiment are both stamped and embossed in white.
