wow for jackie's linen (Rockwell, CTS)



Finally getting around to joining the fun over at Jackie R.'s Pantone Fashion Colors for Spring 2013 to use the Pantone Spring 2013 colors as card inspiration.  I'm starting with the current color which is "linen".  And a true challenge for me.  Linen = vintage.

Well, I also checked out the current CASE this Sketch #42 and the moment I saw the speech bubble in the sketch I decided to take linen modern.



Some textured CS, some Momenta PPs in various tones of linen (what color is linen actually - my first thought was "kraft"...) which were part of a prize package from the lovely Laurel S., and a wood veneer speech bubble from Freckled Fawn.  Linen goes modern.

Thanks for looking.


Supplies for wow:
Paper: CS Scrapmalin, PP Momenta
Stamps: none!
Ink :
Tools: 
Other: veneer Freckled Fawn, Glossy Accents

Vintage also came to mind when I challenged myself to use this color. Your "Linen goes modern" take is so refreshing and sophisticated! Really striking card Maria! So HAPPY you were able to play along!!!
