The Outlawz Color Challenge - July17

It's another Tuesday Color Challenge at The Outlawz. This week Ursula chose our colors and this adorable inspiration photo. Her twist is to add something with wings.

Our July sponsor is A Day For Daisies, but this week I used an image from Beyond The Fringe Crafts. The card is for my brother and he loves tall ships so this image was perfect.

The fold is a twisted easel. I used Golda's tutorial from Cards and Candles in Progress. Thanks for a great tutorial, Golda. I have wanted to try one of these for some time and it was a way to make my brother's card extra special.

 The black 'paper' I used is actually a piece of black vinyl. I picked up a roll of it at a yard sale last summer. Another yard sale find (this summer) is the photo paper I used to make the black and white embossed swirls piece.The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug.

Other materials used: Spellbinders Nestabilities die Scalloped Circle; patterned paper by Stampin' Up; Taken With Teal ink by Stampin' Up; black sequins and blue rhinestone stickers from the Dollar Store.

Lastly, I clipped the golden eagle from a vintage ad that I picked up at Free Vintage Digital Stamps. Thanks Pamela! I printed 3 images and cut a little less from each eagle. Then I layered them, popping up the 2nd layer and sticking the others with glue dots. I like how it turned out.

I hope you like my card and that you will join in the challenge over at The Outlawz.

Blessing hugs,
