Audrey

I wanted to make a card with this fabulous Audrey image sent to me by Monika. It's been sitting on my desk waiting for its moment.
I colored Audrey's skin and her lips, used a script and a circle stencil and sponged with brown and blue DIs.

I've restricted myself to only use scraps for a while, so I made a frame for the image using two leftovers. I attached twine around the panel and added it to a houndstooth embossed paper.

I was realizing I had started to use the colors of the photo over at Creative with stamps, but I struggled a bit to find a way to add some purple and grey. I found some scrap pieces in those colors and decided to decorate with die cut feathers. The button is a brad I found in my stash.


This card is for:
Creative With Stamps Challenge - #6 Photo/Color Inspiration
Crafty Gals Corner - #88 Let's Hear It For The Girls
ABC Challenge - O is for Open

So elegant and sophisticated, the feathers and brad are the perfect embellishments, I can't believe you had the right colors in your scraps for this, how perfect! Way to go using up your scraps!

Beautiful card! I've just come to realize that I don't have any stamps that would be images of a woman (well, I have one!) and when you think about it, isn't an image like this perfect for girlfriends? I seriously need more images like this. I love the elegant look of this card, great colours too!

Isn't that a classic Audrey pose? I love the way you have used it with tha pretty background elements. I also admire your restraint to use up pieces! Great idea! I've been doing that, too, but not restricting exclusively, lol, so does that count? I would never have known you were struggling with the grey and purple! They look perfect right where you have placed them! hugs, de

Stunning card Miss Pia...just love that image.

I love the purple with the grey. Actually, I think almost any colour looks great with grey but this combo is less predictable. This is a lovely, elegant card.
