Raw Umber
which is Brown

I have to say that this REALLY is my painting...
and if you really done believe me here is another photo of it in process

I really enjoyed doing it and will have more to show you in the near future..

So then!
that is the gift and here is now I have made it ready for Christmas, I decided to do the wrapping and tag and matching card all in brown too!
The paper is brown parcel paper that I have stamped with walnut stain distress inks
The Tag and Card are Stamped and distressed on Kraft! LOVE that stuff! and the stamp is a penny Black tree, I have stamped the snowflake in the same and distressing too!
Brown Gingham, and some Jute, then finished off with some liquid pearls.
