For my first project for this year, I created a vintage Art Trading Card / ATC for the January challenge over at The Craft Garden. This months theme is a color challenge with some really pretty colors in grey and peach. Even though the colors are lovey, I really struggled with this one. At first glance though my supplies, I though I didn't have alot of elements to pull this one off, but I did manage to find a few things that I though might work.
The text on the grey background is my How do I love Thee digital stamp background. The simple word Dream is also printed. For the main focal point I used an image from my ephemera collection. I cleaned cleaned ad re colored the image to match the peach tones of the color challenge. As accents I used a paper doily, peach embroidery a bit of netting I have had for quite some time. The embellishment at the top right hand corner is just a punched circle and mini flower which I stacked and layered to create depth and then topped off with a little white rhinestone,. For me this is a pretty simple project but hope you like it.
