White With 1 July challenge - Marsala
For the July challenge at White With 1, the challenge is to scrap the Pantone colour for 2015 - Marsala:
I will admit it, this one put me off, and I wasn't going to do it. However, I decided I would try, and I struggled with it, to get the right shade. It's a challenging colour and not a colour I have in my stash, but a challenge is there to challenge!
I thought this photo of my aunts wedding photo in the sepia tones, might work with this colour. I started with some acrylic paint, and used a script stencil over the cardstock. I die cut some shimmery paper for the first mat, then added some patterned paper and a transparency for the other matting behind the photo. I added some lace, pearl strip, another transparency, and some flowers. I also added some seed beads and some pearl brads. I really don't feel that adventurous with this layout, but I am happy with the end result.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
