Tailored Vintage

I stole the color scheme from the new Nouveau Chic ds from the new catty -- I can't wait to get that one! I started from the center on this card with the clock face and the wheat -- I thought that would make an evocative image -- then I started layering. 

After the torn Sage Shadow layer, it felt like I needed the crisp layered edges of the Black and Going Gray. I don't know why; it shouldn't work, but it does IRL.

The torn Sage Shadow layer is stamped with En Francais and the edges sponges with Sage Shadow. The Going Gray layer is also stamped with En Francais and sponged with GG. The central image is overstamped with Canvas in Going Gray and the spatter from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in both Sage Shadow and Going Gray.

Stamps: Autumn Days, Canvas, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, En Francais, Sense of Time, Happy Everything

Paper: Sage Shadow, Black, White, Going Gray

Ink: Sage Shadow, Going Gray

Accessories: Brads, black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, sponges, pieces from Antique Pewter HPH
