ATC - Brown Theme


I belong to an Australian/New Zealand group which swaps fabric ATC's. Each month there is a new theme. This month was "Brown". Boy, was this hard for me - being a pink/purple/red, bright coloured sorta girl!!! Anyway, here it is, and of course I had to add a bit of red/pink and gold. The coloured bits were needle felted previously, then felted onto the background brown felt. I added some eyelets and threaded some lovely pink and gold yarn through to add a bit of colour to the drab old brown.

Oh, I can relate to that! Brown is a "non-colour" for me, too.
But you did a wonderful job! And I love the bits of "real" colours ;-)

I'd say you pulled of "brown" splendidly. Why do so many of us shy away from brown....I'm guilty too. I supposed because it's just not very exciting.

I would have had a hard time with brown too. But you did a great job working with a color that you're not fond of. It's a great card.

I like thinking of "brown" as a different shade of "purple" - I think you captured it very well!
