Fetching Slippers

I don't use a lot of brown...but seeing as 'Monochromatic Brown' is the theme of this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...I thought I'd give it a go. I followed the sketch from Unscripted Sketches...flipping it as it suited my image ('Fetching Slippers' by Penny Black) better. The stripey paper is from the 'Archaic' pad by BasicGrey, and I used my 'Swiss Dots' and 'Stars' Cuttlebug folders on some Kraft coloured card...rubbing over the raised areas with a brown chalk inkpad to add definition. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching with a white gel pen. I'm also going to enter this card into the Charisma Cardz 'Monochromatic' challenge, and the Allsorts and Sweet Stampin' challenges, which both have the same theme this week of 'In Stitches'.
