The colour palette over at The Outlawz colour challenge has a distinctly French flavour to it for me:
and as I like to play along for fun (I don't enter the challenge as I am a DT member) I made this vintage card:
I used a sheet of Graphic 45 stickers I bought a couple of months ago and made the card according to a sketch at Let's Scrap, where I will enter it as my LOAD #21 for September.
I also used the following for my card:
beige CS card base
very dark brown CS card mat (it looks black on the pic)
brown/cream DP (looks a little lilac in the pic - I think it's the effect of the camera flash)
One of the tag stickers was mounted on a beige CS tag and and has some embroidery/crochet cotton threaded thru the hole
As an embellishment, I stuck one of the round stickers onto a round metal ornament - I love the outcome!
Perhaps it's a little too fussy for a man (although I don't think so) but I think I am quite satisfied with the final product.
Iwould like to add my card to the following challenges:
CLEAR IT OUT CHALLENGE, THANK YOU (I have a box full of the crocket/embroidery cotton that I have hoarded for years!!!)
