Sepia tones

Good morning!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  We had to do a day trip with guests on the boat yesterday, but it was pretty easy.  Next week the full on summer season starts for us and we will be really busy!

The word at the moment (subject to change) is that we will be meeting an unknown number of guests up in the Ionian islands (one of whom will be a vegetarian) on Friday and may or may not stay there for the rest of the month with guests coming and going.  It would be nice to know definitively, but that's just not how this boat works.  I will try to provision for every eventuality and then the guests will remark on the food they find in every cupboard they open on the boat and I'll tell them it's because they can't make up their minds what they want to do!

Anyway, I have a Little Miss Muffet Stamps card to share with you today in sepia tones...  I used the rubber stamp version of Camila and stamped her in brown memento ink rather than my usual black.



The papers I used are from my scraps and from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped some grunge corners from LOTV in brown ink over them and the sentiment is also from LOTV.  The lovely velvet ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the button is from Crate Paper.  The butterflies are from Maya Road.  I coloured Camila with copics.  (I'll update this post with the colours I used later).

Here's a close-up of Camila:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
MarkerPop Challenge #3: Black and White/Sepia

Don't forget there's still time to enter our current challenge at Little Miss Muffet stamps which is to create a circular card or project and we'd love to have you join our Facebook group!  There may even be some freebies floating around there soon!

Ciao!

Gorgeous card - your sepia tones are perfect and I love all the little details you've added - especially your velvet ribbon.
How frustrating about your boat guests - I hope they make their minds up quickly, so that you know what you're doing!
