Colour my Monday! Crumb Cake

Happy bank holiday Monday everyone! How’s the week begun for you?

This week… Like all weeks this year … Mine has begun with some colour play! And this week I decided to play with a NEUTRAL colour…

It is, after all, my favourite of the NEUTRAL colours to use as a focal colour! Well I say that but I actually struggled with this and ended up teaming it with Chocolate Chip to provide some more definition. I think my issue this time was choosing to use First Edition dsp to stamp onto rather than plain cardstock. But hey I love the final piece!

I used a piece of the Parkers Patterns dsp with gold hammer cardstock from the scraps and the afore mentioned First Edition dsp, matted with some Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then stamped the images from Simply Sketched hostess stamp set, and then water coloured them with the aqua painter. I had to add some chocolate Chip ink too to the bird just to make him pop a bit more. I then did some distressing and adding the crumb cake ink with a sponge to finish off all the pieces before layering up.

Hope you like this as much as I do!

Happy crafting!
