Creative Inspirtations Challenge 48 - Say It In Sepia

Now SEpia is the theme this week over at Creative Inspirations now it isnt as bad as it sounds and i looked up the definition for sepia and according to wikipeda Sepia is a dark brown-grey color, named after the rich brown pigment derived from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish Sepia. Well i think tones of reddish brown is what i was thinking of. It isnt as bad as i was thinking once you get started and if you need any hints or inspirations just check out the teams amazing projects they have amazed me.



I have used this image as sepia always makes me think of old pictures and this image reminds me of my gran sadly she left us aged 95 way back in 1982 not a bad innings.Papers are from K&Co and flowers from my stash. Pearls are a mixture of string pearls and half pearls. Lace is recycled. Leaf is a woodware punch. I have distressed the papers and lightly inked with dye based inks. Distress inks on my wish list i think. Image coloured with promarkers and of course image by Mo.
Well I hope you like and i would love to see you over there so if you fancy giving it ago we have 2 fab prizes this week. Our sponser this week is Handy Hippo and also we are picking our March Guest DT from the entries. So head on over and check out the teams project lots of different ideas and show them some love.
