Inkspirational Challenges - Photo Inspiration Feb wk 2


Here's my DT project for Inkspirational Challenges' Photo Inspiration. (See picture below) . We are sponsored this month by Ecletic Anthology . They have lots of great freebies on their website but I couldn't resist buying their set of '500 antique and vintage images of actresses and dancers.'.

For this card I was inspired by the roses in the Inkspirational photo. I chose this photo of an actress with roses in her hair and digitally layered it with a free frame from the Ecletic Anthology website. Then I printed and cut it out, layered it onto cardstock and added roses, pearls, ribbon and a hat pin. (I don't know why the ribbon looks wonky on here, it doesn't in real life! )

 
Please come over and join us at Inkspirational Challenges and show us how this photo inspires you.
