Throwing Caution To The Wind...

Hi folks...life in the cubbyhole can get a bit repetitive...stuck in the same old crafting rut so the cubbyhole crew decided to throw caution to the wind...take themselves right out of their comfort zone and have a bit of a crafty rebel moment...sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't but hey it's only card and paper and you'll never know until you try. Something a little bit different for the Accordion Card project for my October Workshop at The Papeterie...a bit of a challenge to use two colours that you wouldn't normally associate with Christmas...Hickory Smoke and Ground Espresso...it just goes to show the versatility of Distress Inks and I think we pulled it off because I love the soft smokey look against the stark white of the card and the stacked snowflakes...
 with the addition of some Vintage Foil Snowflakes to add a little sparkle...

The weather has definitely turned to Autumn in my neck of the woods...chilly wet and blowing a hooley but we're back on the kitting hamster wheel...lots to do before I head off to Birmingham in 4 weeks...gulp better get a wiggle on.
Hugs Kath xxx

You are so right about that colour combo Kath,, they look fabulous together! I love the addition of the foil too and of course I love KB's accordion die, I never tire of seeing it! Hugs, Anne xx

Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

My Ground Espresso inkpad has already become indispensable. Looking at my complete DI collection it's hard to believe that three years ago I thought I'd never have a use for anything besides the Vintage Photo pad, lol. x

Hi Kath,
This is really rather wonderful :). I do love the fact that you used colours not really associated with Christmas. They certainly work really well! I don't have the Ground Espresso ink yet but it looks like that one has to be moved to the top of my distress ink wish list :).

I'm a huge fan of neutrals at Christmas (not to mention of Hickory Smoke and Ground Espresso!) - so this is right up my street. Absolutely stunning, Kath.
