CottageCutz Victorian Fountain

Hello friends and bloggers.  Today is a Cottage Cutz creation using the Victorian Fountain and Greenery dies for The Scrapping Cottage.  I tried to create a Sepia color in keeping with a Victorian theme and used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink for that purpose. 
The Fountain was cut with brown cardstock and white cardstock that was distressed with the Brushed Corduroy on the edges.  The greenery was cut with green cardstock.  The flowers were made with a Marvey punch, white cardstock and distressed with Brushed Corduroy.

Thanks for stopping by and viewing my newest creations.  If feels so good to be back in the craft room creating again after the little break I took.  See you again soon!

Very pretty. I didn't even realize that there was a fountain die. I really like the vintage/sepia treatment.

mmm, YUM! Great idea to carry the tan/brown theme throughout to bring out the rich colors of chocolate. All the dies and layers look amazing - that is a gift your talent brings us. so beautiful, Carol!

Do you want a laugh, Carol? When I first saw this card in my blogger dashboard, I misread your description and thought you had made a chocolate fountain! Ha, ha!! I like your version of this vintage fountain in sepia colors much, much better. Beautiful craftsmanship, my friend!

Gorgeous card Carol. Wonderful colors and flowers and shading. I envision chocolate in the fountain of course - LOL! Your cards are such a treat and I have definitely missed them. Luckily, I have many of them around my house so I can be inspired any time I want. I am hoping this is the year we finally get to create together! Hugz!
