THE OUTLAWZ COLOUR CHALLENGE : 24 SEPTEMBER

Happy Heritage Day to my South African followers!

 

The colour challenge at The Outlawz comes with a fabulous inspiration pic, and that's what inspired me to play along for fun (I can't actually enter the challenges cos I am a DTeamie there)

This is the inspiration pic

 

and this is my vintage inspired card:

 As my startingpoint i used the wonderful image of the vintage rooster and sunflowers from Graphic 45 DP.  I added a little Copics colouring in the form of shadows, and a white gel pen for highlights.

Tomake up my card i used the following :

black CS card base
woodgrain DP
vintage lace with a metal clip and sun charm


To keep my lace in place I used the Hi Tack red double sided tape from BLUEBERRY BEAR  - I have great peace of mind when I use this cos I know that the lace won't start curling up and lifting off the DP within a few hours!

I created the vase for the sunflowers by splitting a long wooden bead and recolouring it with my new Graphi'It marker:

The sunflower are years and years old, and part of a big packet that I bought and hardly use!

 And lastly, I added a seam binding bow, attached with a twine tied vintage button:
