Fishermen in Black and Blue

It looks like I'm really attracted to limited palette challenges right now! Here, the thing was to use only different shades of black and blue.

I'm also trying a new, yet smaller card size here. This 1" x 2.75" format is called a moo, and it's a great way to use all your treasured paper scraps!

The fishermen images are from an old touristic photo book of Greek islands Mykonos and Delos. The book was, again, a free find at our local recycling center. I'm really happy with how the vintage pictures look together with the background of blue paper scraps!

With this set of cards, I'm participating in the weekly challenge at Collage Obsession, the theme being Men. In Finland we celebrate Fathers' Day tomorrow, and while I was creating these cards, I was also remembering the fishing trips together with my father or grandfathers when I was little.


  1. Salla, you are so right - these vintage images look fabulous on that Mediterranean blue background. What a wonderful way to remeber your father!
