This month on Make My Monday we are going Vintage.

Yes the theme this month is Vintage and this first week the challenge is to use the colours Brown and Cream with a bit of Pink or Blue. This is my interpretation of the colours.

I started with a blank card that I topped with paper from collection elements, on top of this I added some house shapes. The small ones are just cut out, the edges inked and then stuck to the card, where as the large one is quite thick. I used a house shape again from collections elements that I covered with paper from the same pad as I had used on the base card. I then wound brown cord around the shape and mounted the stamped image on top. I had stamped the image onto card then mounted it to a frame that I had covered with sepia ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The whole thing is mounted with foam pads to give it some depth. The flower is made with Tims die and craft paper that I edged with ink, the centre was stamped and embossed with sepia ink and clear embossing powder as before. I then just added a couple of pins behind the flower and a word disk to the top of the house.

Now get over to Make My Monday and have a look at what Jacqueline the rest of the team have done, and join in with this challenge.

Before I finish this post I would like to say thank you to those of you that have been taking part each week, I enjoy coming to visit your blogs and checking out what you have been doing each week.

When I think of your art, I think of layers. That's what I see today, too. Gorgeous layers and lots of repetition, too. I love it all.
