Paperplayers + Pixie Dust

Good morning everyone.
I woke up to very wet fog this morning but it's gorgeous sunshine now :o)
The painting is coming along nicely but I've run out of paint so have to go buy another tin! Once I've got the paint, Rob will come and finish off for me then I can get some kind of order back in here! At least I am now able to use the computer again WhooHooooo

Oh dear, I digress again!
This card is for
Paperplayers #18 - monochromatic
Pixie Dust Studios - swirly swirls 
Unfortunately the swirls don't show up very well in the pic but they really are there!
As I so love sepia photographs, I decided to have a go at doing a sepia card :o)
I found the rubber stamp in the bottom of a box, unloved and unused (sorry, can't remember where it was from). Coloured with copics, hand cut the oval and lightly chalked it. Inked 2 white flowers and added button and ribbon. I used brown Bazzill for the base card and stamped swirls with versamark then embossed with clear embossing powder. Main image is popped with foam pads :o)

Jackie, you handcut the oval????!!! You are amazing! I love the sepia tones - I think you captured it perfectly. Great job with the challenge. The sepia tones fit the vintage feel of the lovely stamp.
Ah, yes. Derbyshire in the sun - nothing beats that!
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week.
