Monochrome Vintage

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How has your day been?
I have spent this morning reorganising my craft room and now spending the time crafting.

Tonight's card I am sharing with you I made for the Mad Crafter's Giggle One Word Wonder on Facebook, The word is Vintage.

Step by Step

1. A5 Landscape card which I have matted and layered black and white pearlescent card.
2. I wrapped black lace around both layers before matting and layering onto the card.
3. The image is from Scribble and Scrap Crafts which I have matted and layered onto black card.
4. I added the flowers from my stash.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment and grey pearl gems to the 2 corners.

Many thanks for visiting today.

Linda this is beautiful! I like monotone as it brings out the image. I've always been a black and white or sepia toned person! Great job as usual. You never disappoint!

Thank you for sharing your project & creativity with us at Aud Sentiments Linda! This design really draws me in... the black and white picture [that is precious!] combined with the vintage elements of the black lace & the black and white flowers are beautiful together! I love when the flowers fit the focal image as they do here! Nicely done!
