World Card Making Day!

It's here, it's here!

This is my "playing" for the day. I wanted to do vintage but in fresh, fun colors...not the typical "brown" palette that you think of when going vintage. This darling Melissa Frances paper was the perfect color palette springboard for me.

A couple of details....notice the Eiffel tower in the background of my main panel, I was sure to stamp it off of my white panel but to line it up with one I had stamped on my background paper.
The jewels I placed on my bottom layer but also overlapped it on my ribbon...and I loved stamping directly on that ribbon with my sentiment.

Here is a close look at my main panel. It was just a white piece of paper that I stamped the vintage text, Eiffel tower and then these fashionistas from the "Haute Couture" ATC that is going to be released at CHF October 6th! Perfect set for all that vintage paper that I hoard.
Coloring these ladies...I wanted them to match my paper but not stand out too much. I took my new lightest markers and paired them up with the dark colors that matched my paper. I used the palette technique to transfer the dark color to the outfits. I loved the high contrast effect that this created.
This is a close look at that pretty resin corner piece as well....Melissa Frances does resin pieces beautifully!

Enough chit chat from me....enjoy the day crafting. I know I have a lot of fun images on my desk right now to color....makes me happy!
Thank you so much for coming to visit me here on this intensely busy blog hoppin' day.....ENJOY!
