White was one of the five scheme colours and I chose to work with this as my main colour and found some old 12 x 12 smooth white sheets bought in the early days of scrapbooking but not used since. I made my own background paper by stamping with this fabulous Blazing Poppies stamp by IndigoBlu and then generally splattering the page with more Frayed Burlap DI.
Orange and lime green were two of the other colours (along with blue and grey), so these white flowers got the treatment with Spiced Marmalade DI - again another inky colour I have not used in absolutely ages.
Using all these old supplies fits in very nicely with this month's challenge at Our Creative Corner which is Forgotten Things. Such a great challenge as we have all got something hidden away we have not used for a while. There are some stunning DT inspirational pieces and some wonderful entries so do pop over and have a look.
The photograph is of my parents before they were married (about 1952) and I expect Mum had made her dress as I see the same design popping up in a lot of photographs around that time.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are getting better weather than we are at the moment!
