The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 27

Thanks for visiting from Alisons page,

Colour Challenge Week

Its about time i put up a box card since it is the one thing I think I do well!

This week we had some really, really devastating news.
My beautiful uncle passed away suddenly he was only 50. 
(my mums baby brother)
I had to make a special card for my mum x.

 I spent a long time thinking about this card as it had to be just right.
I wanted to do some colouring with Stampin' Write Markers and my inks and blender pens and this is how it worked out.
The Venetian Crochet Trim I dyed with the Rose Red Stamp Pad and Reinker.... its very messy but worth it in the long run.
I hope you like it.
