Ladies Day



Morning all, it's my turn to host our new challenge at Allsorts this week and I have chosen the theme of 'Ladies Day', basically something for a special lady be it Mothering Sunday, a Birthday or indeed so many other occasions. Our sponsors this week are Crimson Cloud and FlonzCraft.

Two cards from me this week, the one at the top using images from the Vintage Fashion Magazine design sheet from Nicecrane Designs. I fell in love with this sheet as soon as I saw it and knew exactly what I would make with it. The top of the three panels were cut and embossed with some dies I bought at the NEC made by Britannia Dies and other than that just matting and layering and some feathers, lace and ribbons to embellish.


The second card is another along the same lines as a Penny Black one a few weeks ago masking through an arch aperture but this time creating a New York styline using Pan Pastels to create the backdrop to the paper pieced Flonz Craft image.

I do hope you will join on our challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your creations.

Happy weekend all.

  21. The feathers & bows on the first are very tasteful in combination with the fashionable ladies. However, it is the second one that captures my imagination. I love her dress & the soft colours of that arch background. Your ribbons really bring out those colours in her clothing & I love the thin border created by your matting. Very atmospheric indeed.

  35. Oh! what a great way of depicting the sky, Brenda, and drawing attention to the image! Love how your ribbons die in with the background - great design! and your vintage ladies are fabulous in their brilliant colors! I'm sorry to have been MIA for so long.

  41. Two more gorgeous creations. The first is so lovely but the second brought me many happy memories. The second looks like photos of my Mum as a young woman and young married woman. She loved beautifully tailored clothes and had a a few fabulous outfits rather than a closet full of clothes. I have photos of her looking much like this card!
