International Art and Soul Challenge 7

Our theme this fortnight, at International Art and Soul is Vintage. Other than that, your project can be anything you want.

My first thought for this theme was to look out a sepia-toned photograph, but then I decided I wanted something a little brighter, so I headed for a Debbi Moore CDRom I've had for many years - in fact, I think it was the first CDRom I bought for cardmaking purposes. It contains lots of Art Deco images, most of which, I think, are vintage, although they may have been 'cleaned up' a bit for the CD.

I love the colours in this - the pale golds and pinks with that bright, bold blue! I matted it, and used some Dovecraft backing paper in a soft beige tone and completed the card with two strips of lace and two strips of pearls. Believe it or not, deciding on the embellishment for this took most of an afternoon, as well as a whole load of efforts which had to be binned! But, once I saw the lace, I realised I needed something to break up the blue, and the pearl strips seemed idea.

I hope you can join us this time!

What a fabulous choice of colours Josephine, have to admit I tend to go for the soft shades when attacking vintage but you have really shown me how the strong colours can work too. Simply stunning :) :) :) Big hugs, Jane xxxxx
