Lovely Ladies

Good morning...back again with another scheduled post! This is my DT card for this weeks Challenge at Fab N Funky. It's our lovely and so talented Pat K's turn to host this week and she's chosen the theme of 'Lovely ladies'.  Our sponsor for this challenge, Crafts and Me generously gave the DT some gorgeous images to play with, I chose to use this beautiful Audrey Hepburn image by Emily Luella. It's already shaded so I decided not to colour it, just printed it out in sepia tones and used a touch of distress ink around the edges. I stamped the rose (magazine freebie!) onto the corner of a piece of dp, coloured with copics and added a spattering of white frantage. Distressed edges and faux stitching. I added a film strip die cut and flowers, a few brads and pearls. The sentiment and banner are stamped.
This is such a lovely theme that I'm sure loads of you will want to play along with us... just click here to join the fun!
Thanks for looking!

As usual your colouring of that rose is outstanding and beautiful.
I just love that image and your were very right to just print it sepia as it looks amazing.

Hi Chris, what a wonderful vintage feel you've given this card! Love the combination of sepia and colour. The doily, pearls and flowers add just the right feminine touch. Love the addition of the film strip! You've managed to surround an amazingly beautiful portrait with a style of decoration that is perfect for both her and the era which saw her at her most famous. Thanks so much for adding this to my Feminine Anything Goes challenge and taking part in our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
