Soho Subway Vintage

I bought the Soho Subway paper for a lot of the masculine prints and the awesome alphabet designs, but the first card I used it on, I ended up using the flourishy vintage designs instead... perfect for the feel of this card!

I love the new Alphabet Press folder too, and it added the perfect touch to this tag, along with the sponging and the 7/8" Trim and the Linen Thread. To give the bottom of the Crushed Curry strip a nice edge, I slid it into the edge of the Hexagon Punch. 



Challenges I used:

Mojo Monday - (see sketch below)
colourQ - (see palette below) (My DSP choice forced my hand a bit to replace the Dusty Durango, but after sponging the Crisp Cantaloupe with Early Espresso it leans further into the orange family)
Our Creative Corner - Steampunk Tic Tac Toe (Flourish, Texture, A Heart)
Ribbon Carousel - Holidays and Celebrations (No. 1... Yahoo!!!)

PS. I am SO loving the Steampunk Tic Tac Toe challenge!!! I had to keep this one simple enough for a club card, but I'm going to do at LEAST one more, all out card for this theme!!!

  1. Love your tender colours, Anjii,

    even though they might seem rather uncommon for steampunk makes ;)

    I am happy to hear that you love the challenge and can't wait to see your "all out" steampunk make! Thank you for joining us at Our Creative Corner.

  2. Love how you've used more muted colours yet have matched the palette perfectly. The embossed label and the detail of the curled up corner is lovely. Thanks so much for joining us at Colour Q this week!
