Penguins in Sepia....


I'm back with another sample card :)
For this card I tried a new technique for me.....inking up an embossing folder before running through the machine to create a different effect.
I used some buff coredinations card and inked up the inside of the folder using a very similiar colour ink.....Cookie Crumb by Stampin Up for a tone on tone look.
I really like the effect :) It would look great using a bright ink and white card for a bolder look.

I went for the softer look as I had already coloured the adorable penguins from Sugar Nellie in sepia tones for a different look to my last penguin card :)
I have used 3 promarkers.....satin, tan and cinnamon along with my sepia prisma pencil.
The card shape is a kriss kross card and I added a diecut snowflake and lovely wooden button to finish :)

I am entering my card into ~
PaperTakeWeekly's 'Anything Goes' challenge & 4th birthday :)

Thanks for looking xx

This card is lovely Jenny. I bought craft card blanks on Saturday (looks like brown wrapping paper) after seeing this card and I'm hoping to colour images in sepia to put on them. Have checked my box and I've got the Promarker colours you've used. Just need to practice now. Thanks for putting your demo cards on your blog. It's difficult to remember everything you've seen and been told once you get home again so it's great to have a reference.
