Collage Obsession Challenge

Hello there! Happy 2010 & welcome to my blog. If you're a creative soul and like to share your work with others, there is a new challenge website. Look at: http://www.collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.com  
There is a new challenge posted every Monday. The first challenge started this week!

This week's challenge is to use the image of French actress Sarah Bernhardt and/or the words, "worn out".  I love making cards, so this is what I created:

                                          (Angled view)

Here is a "head-on" view:


The photos were scanned into my computer, so they aren't as crisp looking as I would like. I had some trouble importing the photos from my camera to my computer (drama!), so scanning them in was my second choice. LOL!


Here's some details about the card:


1. The size of the card is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". 
2. I stamped the French writing background. (Hero Arts stamp H2365)
3. Typewriter keys spell out "Worn Out". (Paper Bliss Accents/Westrim Crafts)
4. Card edges were cut & sponged for an aged look. (Ranger Archival Ink/Coffee)
5. Center of card has an actual dried flower. (Pressed Petals/Real Flower Confetti)
6. The text behind Sarah is from Hamlet. She actually played the title role!



Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.


Peace, God Bless & XOX!

Very beautiful collage full of details, I love the typewriter keys and the real flower, and background really fits to the worn out theme. Great piece.

Thank you for participating our challenge.
