Fingers crossed Challenge 16 at Artful Times

Why fingers crossed you may ask, well Neet has check my grammar and spelling but who knows  if I have done the linky right, so fingers crossed
Before Sam decided to leave she had set the challenge of Orange Brown and White, which we have decided to stick with. Not a colour combination I found easy but I'm pleased with the result :)

For the background  I have blobbed  acrylic paint in the said colour and scraped it down the card with a credit card, once dry I dry brushed with white, then stamped foliage with the same brown and orange paint. The girl was then stamped with sepia ink onto some card inked with spiced marmalade and rusty hinge, bleaching out the face and socks. The text, cut  from a page spoke to me .



So hope you like my atc and join Neet and I  in this challenge at Artful Times

Thanks to Alison I would also like to enter this for Twisted Tuesday Challenge a touch of orange

Love your ATC - the windswept girl's fab, and your background is full of movement. And, to reassure you, I've just successfully Linky'd... so you're good to go!
