Welcome! Over at Frilly and Funkie we are into our second week of the current challenge. Maggi is hosting this time, and she has chosen 'Vintage Valentines' as her challenge theme. Here is her invitation to play:
It's sweetheart time and what could be more fun than creating Valentine's for our loved ones? For this challenge we want to see vintage valentines in vintage colors like pinks, blues, purples. No bright red please. Show us your vintage side with vintage colors and images. If you need some inspiration, click here to link to a great vintage color palette.
As always, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, and the winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie. The next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I love Maggi's color palette, and tried to follow it closely, choosing vintage blues and purples with gold accents. So unusual for my busy (LOL) Valentine's card, but I like how it all came together.
I colored the Resin Flower Embellishment with alcohol inks and paired it with Funky Florals #2 foliage. Under the postage stamp is a Stitched Rectangle cut from Metallic Kraft Core, a panel stamped with Lattice from the Lattice & Flourish set, and the final panel is Classic Kraft Stock in a plum color. My lighting wasn't the best for photography today, so it looks brown.
That's it for me today! Now it's over to YOU! I can't wait to see what you will create for this Vintage Valentine's color challenge. Sending out big warm hugs! Sara Emily
