Theme of 1920´s

söndag 17 juli 2011

Good morning everyone!
Over at Creatalicious Challenges there are an interesting challenge this week.
They wants us to make a project with the theme of 1920´s.
When I think of 1920's, I think of clean, straightbut yet elegant lines. With glittery details of silver and a little lace or feathers.
Often, it intends to black and white but I have chosen to make my card in soft pastel colors, it also felt right.

I have used the lovely vintage papers from Melissa Frances for the background. They're even more beautiful in real life, the pictures do them no justice.
I have made a frame to the image with two Nesties Labels Four and inked it with Tattered Rose.

I think the white feather and the brad is just right.
Then I made a little tag, and stamped it with some old stamp from Panduro in Tattered rose. I sponged the edges with Old Paper Ink. and added a black and white brad.

Then I used pink ribbon and another satin brad. It didn´t seem quite finished so I added some green beads on the frame.
Then it had to bee enough, in the 1920´s it was not so much decorated I think.

This is a picture from the inside I hope that the fine paper shows.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the lovely comments. I very much appriciate each and every one of them.
Hugs, Birgit
