The Hat Shoppe - Scraps Of Darkness

The Hat Shoppe - created with the Scraps Of Darkness Sept. kit called Passages.   

This was made for the the Darkest Side challenge at Scraps Of Darkness. This is run by forevervampress, Celina, and the topic was communication. 

This form of communication is the postcard. This was the postcard I picked up after husband and I both bought hats from this really cool hat store in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. I also tied the theme together by using Tim Holtz Alteration Fades texture plates -Postcards. 

The papers used here were the Teresa Collins -World Traveler collection.  
I added a touch of Dusty Attic on the bottom near my dress form, painted them black and finished them with Stickles in Platinum.   I do believe Platinum is my "go-to" Stickles color. 

The Tim Holtz weathered clock die was used below.  I just  weaved a burgundy ribbon through it and added some stickles in,,,yeah, you guessed it.  Platinum. 

I also added the Prima Lovely Collection Fabric Leaves. They have such a rich color and texture.  My black flower was just a stash floral from Michaels with some stickles on the top.

The kit is totally gorgeous and packed with amazing goodness. You can take it vintage, feminine, or grungy and dark. Whatever your heart desires. It all works. 

Check out the Scraps Of Darkness gallery to see how you can make thhe kit fit your scrappy style. 

Thanks a bunch for letting me into your day.
