Come And Grow Old With Me

Good morning everyone, hope you have all had a great long week-end, did you manage to get any crafting done, or have you been in the garden?....  it was lovely and sunny here in Yorkshire but a little chilly still for me lol!!

It's Tuesday already, so time for another fabulous challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly' it's a nice simple one today 'Anything Goes', there is a little twist of 'No patterned Paper' if you fancy a bit of a challenge but it is optional!

For my card I chose to use no patterned paper.  I used an embossing folder, which I got free with one of my magazines, and a lovely image from 'Bugaboo Digi Stamps' called 'Grow Old With Me' I coloured it with my Tim Holtz distress markers. After I had coloured it I realized it was an image I had printed on my computer some months ago and the distress inks hadn't run, I was well chuffed, so I am going to give some of my other digi's a go with my distress inks, as I really love working with them!  I wanted the image to be the focal point so kept it quiet simple, hope you like it...

I used Olive Green card stock, but it looks black on the photo, in real life it matches the leaves perfectly! and it's not as harsh as black.
