I decided to play along with the challenge colors at Dynamic Duos and its dessert option of umbrella. I was looking through my stamp catalogue looking for umbrella stamps and came across a selection of photo stamps I've had for years and years. I thought this image of Marilyn would look suitably vintage/shabby chic. I love this stamp from Stampsmith - I had a quick look on their website but couldn't see this image nor a brilliant one of Audrey Hepburn that I've also got. Photo stamps aren't the easiest to stamp because they are so finely detailed but it's so worth it. This really looks like a photo cut out of an old newspaper.
I lightly colored Marilyn's dress using a Melon Mambo marker and layered it onto a piece of Very Vanilla. Further texture was added using some flocked paper from Mocha Morning DSP, some torn DSP from Newsprint and Brights DSP and some colored Vanilla Trim Flowers. Some black twine and a paper clip finish off my card.
So, in summary, I couldn't find an umbrella for the dessert option at Dynamic Duos, but I really love this card anyway :)
Thanks for looking.
