Shabby Artwork

      Today's card is for House Of Cards, this month we have a colour scheme to follow with a hint of roses in the photograph.
     I have tried to make my card look like an old painting hanging on the wall of a grand old house. A shabby frame holding an aged painting that hangs on a wall covered in fancy wallpaper and instead of the artist name on a plaque there is a greeting.
     I have stamped with a rose from Chocolate Baroque's set Steampunk Butterfly using Archival Ink Watering Can, which is a lovely grey ink, on to cream card. The card is distressed around the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink and stamped over with a crackle stamp in the same colour. The roses are coloured with pencil, they were the only true peach colour I could find in my stash. I have left the background roses uncoloured.
     The frame is die cut with a Spellbinder from satin gold card and distressed with brown acrylic paint. The frame and image are mounted on foam pads above a patterned background from a Trimcraft paper stack.
     I have coloured the cream card blank green, the cream looked a little stark. The artist plaque is die cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Banners and folded so the middle stands up a little, with a small peel off greeting attached.
     This colour challenge last all month but the card style will change in two weeks, this fortnight is Shabby/Vintage or Cute & Fun.  CAS or Classic/Elegant later in the month follows later in the month. We would love you to join us, so pop over and see the DT inspiration at House Of Cards.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
