Ooh, Barbara is the hostess this week and she has a lovely choice of colors for us to play with! Take a look at these:
She used the beautiful paper from Basic Grey called Cappella as her inspiration, and it has some gorgeous vintage designs! Right up my alley!! Remember, you can play along too, even if you don’t have these exact colors—just use something close. Check out the CTD blog for all the details and how to link your very own creation!!
I used the Mojo Monday sketch 144:
but turned it on its side to make it fit my image:
The stamped image from 100 Proof Press is actually much larger, but I trimmed it down to fit my card. I used a couple of pieces from the BG pad, as well as some Mellow Moss and Blush Blossom panels, both stamped with Vintage Vogue blossoms. I did a little sponging in BB on the silhouettes, although it’s difficult to see here. Since I used such big brads, I only put two on the left side and balanced it with the third on the top right. I stamped the image in the new Early Espresso, just because I wanted to try it out! It is a little bit darker and richer than Chocolate Chip….just like espresso! The little “happiness” is from a retired SU set called Expressive Flexible Phrases. Oh, and here’s the inside, almost forgot:
