colour challenge

A colour challenge at Our Creative corner asks for only blue, brown and purple/plum -no black lines, not colours I would usually put together although I do love blue and brown together and its harder than I thought not to have any black on there. All the stamping is done with memento rich cocoa and archival cobalt blue. The dress form is from the lovely free stamps with creative stamping magazine and the others are from Indigo blue . My faux sewing went a bit haywire but it would probably be just as wobbly if I had sewn it by machine, never quite manage to get a straight line when I try to sew on paper. You would not believe how long it took me make this card, I have really lost the creative plot these days mainly down to the side effects of various meds I have to take, seem to be in a permanent "fog" of indecision and procrastination ! but I'm not giving up yet !

  1. Hi Joan, This is gorgeous, you do vintage and fashion so well. Caz

  2. I know a bit how it can feel when heavy medication takes you your card is even more admirable a make! It's wonderful and "rich cocoa" is one of my personal favs to stamp with too :)

    Hope you will feel better soon!

  11. What a beautiful card you have produced. I wouldn't worry about your faux sewing at all - looks authentic to me. Well done you for keeping at it and if those meds are making you 'foggy' - you'd never know it from this make!
    Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner for this challenge.

  12. Just doing a catch up as we have had internet problems too. Gorgeous card, certainly doesn't look as if you have lost the plot.
