Dream Valley Challenge 36 - Anything but a square

This time at Dream Valley the challenge is Anything But a Square.  So what we want to see is a project with shape!  We have two fab sponsors too.  First we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts who are offering one lucky person a £10 voucher for their on-line store.  Secondly, the amazing Meljen's Designs are offering 4 images of their choice to one lucky person.




I decided to make a side-step card.  All the stamps I used are from the PaperArtsy Crowns and Castles range (sets 1, 3, 7 and 9).  The dark brown side-step card had a layer of kraft added to each section with bricks stamped on it.  Then I stamped the castle pieces in Versafine Onyx Black onto cream card and then cut them out, then added them to my card to give a castle effect.  I added colour to the castle using Derwent Drawing pencils.  The sentiment was stamped onto cream card and then matted and layered usng Nestabilities Labels Four.
