Rogue Redhead Designs has started a new "Rebel Challenge" - and the very first challenge is Bold-Colored Vintage! From the RRD site:
Vintage images often are used with soft, sweet colors - so not Rogue! Let's use some of that summer heat and go color wild! Use 2 or more of the bold colors [above right] combined with vintage images in your submission.
You do not have to use Rogue Redhead Designs in your creation (but it would be fabulous if you did!); one lucky participant will win a $15.00 US voucher at the Rogue Redhead Designs Etsy store .
So, for my creation.....The first thing I did was print out the little color graphic of the bold colors for the challenge. Then I went through my stash of papers, laying them down next to the graphic, and decided which ones to use. I decided to keep the vivid fuchsia mainly in the image, and not the papers, coordinating it only with the little button that highlights the sentiment. Then it was just a matter of layering, distressing, and assembling. The main image is from the Relish Reading plate, available at Stamp Diva. I colored her with Copics, cut her out, and layered her on the blue panel. I punched and assembled the rest of my patterned papers around her. Because I used all four of these vivid hues, I wanted to make sure that each color occurred in more than one place on the card, to make them more cohesive and look like a part of the color story. I added a fuchsia button with blue seam binding to coordinate with the image, and a green "photo corner" that I cut from the same paper as the bottom trim. The paper along the left side actually has more than one of the challenge colors in it, to pull everything together. I stitched along the left side for a little shabby vintage flavor. The sentiment is from RRD's Bits and Pieces set.
I hope you can play along - this is a very fun challenge, and a great way to add some new sparkle to your vintage images!
