This week's theme at Simon's Monday blog challenge is to create using only three colors and, while this tag may look like I left them out, my trio is off-white, green and sepia.
According to Google, black is not a color; a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes (in case you were wondering).☺
I used a Found Relative photo which I cut-out and pasted to the edge of a postcard and then attached to a manila tag tinted to match the postage stamp.
The backside of these photos has pretty patterned paper which I peel off (to make cutting easier) and I decided to use it to make the postcard background more interesting.
I just cut away some of the pattern, flipped it over, pasted it down then peeled away parts of it (like on the lady's face).
I added some Remnant Rubs and emphasized the shadow near the lady's feet.
(Note to self--dream big AND dream in color!)
(Another note to self--the postmark on this card is 1915 which means I used a 100-year old post card to make this tag.)
