Crafty Kraft card

Hello and welcome, its Monday so time for another challenge at Make My Monday with the theme chosen by me: 
Use Kraft Card

 I embossed the Kraft card with an embossing folder ( sorry don't know who by I then  smooched the  embossed design  with SU Whisper White using a kitchen towel. since seeing here I think I might add a couple of jewels or three.
I stamped one of the flowers  from Tim Holtz Flower Garden onto water colour paper using  versamark, embossed with detail black EP then coloured using a water colour technique with Distress Stain. Before deciding to use EP  I'd stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and cut out. When it came to mounting the flowers  I'd used one embossed and one NOT! but it was already on the card  when I realised so I decided to leave it....hope you don't notice... lol
The tag was made using a punch with a sentiment from hobby craft.The bright coloured hemp is by Hemptique from TK Max

Trees and leaves

Good morning and welcome to this week's inspiration  piece for the Make My Monday challenge which is all about
Trees and Leaves.
 The above card uses a Tim Holtz alterations trellis die, Clearly Besotted Leafy accents stamps and corresponding dies, sentiment from Clear Impressions freebie via Get Stamping magazine. Three shades of green distress inks and walnut stain.

For the card below I used French Foliage set of stamps from SU in DI's peeled pain and fired brick. sentiment from HOTP Artful collection. I was inspired by the Less is More Challenge to use opposite colours on the colour wheel, hence red and green. I'm not sure it passes as LIM but I'll enter it for the challenge any way ;-)

Thank you for looking you know I love it when you do, especially if you leave a comment it's so very much appreciated.
