FSC - Monochrome plus one

Hi Everyone

This is my DT card for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge which today is to use monochrome plus one.

As you can see I have chosen to use the sepia tones and my additional colour is black.

FSC challenges are for stampers only, sorry no digis allowed, and on this card I have used DPs, but also stamped with Fresco Finish acrylic paint - vintage lace on dark brown card using a Darkroom Door background stamp and also I used French Correspondence by B Line Designs using vintage photo on cream paper.

 I added a touch of gold foiling round the edge of the DP, lots of distressed edges using my fabulous zutter distresser, more vintage lace paint on the edges of bits, a rosette, nesties scalloped circles and cricket flourishes finished with punched flowers and gems. I liked the masculine/feminine appeal to this and have made it into my wedding anniversary card for Ken. But I will have to hide it until the end of July.

If you would like to enter and have a chance to win a stamp from Marina at Cottage Crafts, then pop over to the challenge blog to see the amazing Stampettes creations. They are all such talented ladies. 
I hope to see you there.

I hope your weekend is going well, enjoy the rest of Sunday and have a wonderful week ahead.

Thanks for stopping by, your visits always mean so much to me.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
