She's Got Style - LO by Cathy

This month at Berry71Bleu the Design Team was sponsored by Studio 75 and we were all given the gorgeous "Summer and Latte" paper range and some chipboard to play with.  I was inspired by Marivic's beautiful tag and the Studio 75 papers to create this vintage LO of my mother looking so chic in Paris at the age of 21.

She's Got Style
I decided to alter the background paper with some gesso, ink, glimmer mist and masks, then grunged up the edges with a border punch.

List of Materials:  Berry71Bleu tag, Studio 75 Summer and Latte papers + chipboard, paper and crochet doilies, Prima chipboard, Petaloo flowers, Mulberry wild roses, Kaisercraft journal tags, Basic Grey diecut sticker, metal charms, EK Success border punch, Carolees tiny alpha stickers, Gesso, Ink, Glimmermist
