Monochrome Picnic.

Hi everyone. I was going to post this card last night but my broadband suddenly decided to let me have only local access. Criticism didn't help so in the end I had to give up! So I hope I'm not too late for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is monochrome, shades of brown this week. I couldn't think what to do at first as most of my PB stamps are hedgies, dogs, mice etc. Then I had an idea that I could stamp this image in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and add brown DP, flowers etc. Not sure if it's worked ok or not. I edged the DP and image and distressed round the image (very badly) with brushed corduroy DI too.

I'm a bit short of time now so I'll just tell you what I used :-

DP :- sorry no idea as it is double sided and there is no name on it.
Colouring :- Distress Ink. Promarkers (on the hedgie and mouse).
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Flowers :- not sure but might be Prima.
Cream lace from Quixotic Paperie and brown ribbon from stash.
Cream card from local paper mill.
I am also going to enter some more challenges:-
Passion for Promarkers - In the garden.
Crafty Creations - Distressing.
That's probably me for the day now. I need to finish a DT card but I also need to have my lunch and go to work! I was going to a crop tomorrow but my daughter is off to get the keys to her flat now so I think I am booked for tomorrow for uncrafty things. Lucky me.
