Crazy Amigo Challenge - Colourful Vintage


It is amazing how vintage photographs lend themselves to coloured backgrounds so beautifully. I purchased this wonderful photo from an Etsy seller (Musty Box Ephemera) and noted that the woman had a touch of orange in her dress. I played with this colour in the background and accompanying embellishments. This is my entry for this week's Crazy Amigo Challenge.
