One Colour.....Any Colour

Where does the time go, here we are again around to another Monday which means another challenge with Simon Says Stamp and Show and this week we would like you to create with ONE COLOUR.....ANY COLOUR.  I found this quite a challenge just sticking to one colour but one I enjoyed very much.
I decided to create a card this week using brown tones and the fabulous London images from Artistic Outpost, Loverly London and London Underground. I went for a very aged, vintage feel to my card ageing all the pieces with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Once again I have added one of my favourite technique's, adding letters to Jump Rings adhered with Glossy Accents to give dimension to my piece, along with an added bottle cap and vintage bunting.  Machine stitching has been added to the outside edge.
To create the bunting I simply cut triangular pieces from white card, stamped the flag image onto each triangle with a VersaMark Watermark pad, added clear Embossing Powder and coloured with Distress Ink for that vintage feel.  I then added machine stitching to the bunting for added dimension.
I added my gentleman image to a bottlecap again for added dimension and sponged around the entire piece with Distress Ink.

Please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

This is a gorgeous design Tracy and I really like the elements you've used to bring it all together. The bunting is so effective and I like the jumpring lettering as well. penny

This is really great Tracy, I love those vintage London images and you've used them perfectly! The bunting is fantastic and the way you've applied the vintage photo ink so subtly on the other elements really makes this a standout project!
