Colour create blue and brown

I cant tell you how happy I was to see this colour combo but now I cant tell you why till next week!!! Had fun doing this and tried to avoid the cutsie which seems to have taken over my cardmaking lately. I never used cute images before just using flowers or this grungy sort of look but I actually found it harder than I thought to come up with a non cutsie card now Ive got in that mindset weird isnt it?
Anyway this is a fab image from paperartsy stamped with vintage photo. The background is inked with weathered wood - both distress inks my fav ink pads. The background paper is from Fresh print as is the flower and brown matting paper. The series is called Blue Raspberry. Edges torn and inked lace inked and ribbon too to give that grungy old sort of look. Couldnt find any pearls so used a pearl brad in the flower. I am one happy Clarky J with the end result Hope you like it too!


  1. Love this card and like the fact that it gets away from the cutsie. I like this style but find look difficult to achieve myself. Will have to give it a try again.

  3. Hi Janet, I love your card, it looks so classy with that fantastic image and the distressing of the lace and edges, you've come out of your cutie side with a cracking vintage look card, it's perfection. Chris x
