DCM

AD-dicted
I want you to browse the tv and magazines for advertisments and use them as inspiration. It might be the format, the colours, the products, the slogan - whatever floats your boat. Remember you can do this anytime, any place, anywhere as long as you link it to this blog in the usual way!

The DCM this week really made me think, not easy for me lol. So I hope that you don't mind Kathy but I followed your thinking and had a poke through my ephemera cupboard. When we went through my FIL's stuff we found loads of old adverts, photos, newspapers etc, which delighted me no end!! But I digress.....I found this advert for old tricycles and I loved the greens in it. Unusual as I don't normally go for greens!

The paper is K & Co and the little copper thingies are We R Memory Keepers. Thanks for looking X

Cool card Karen. I'm going for the vintage ads too, not posted it yet. I love the copper thingy, must look out for those.

Great response to the dare (still trying to get my head round this one)

Realised I got over-excited about your addition and forgot to say anything about your DCM card - I love the greens here too and you did a great job bringing them out. The copper hardware looks fab, too!

I'm glad to see that someone went down the only route I could see myself taking. This is tough, isn't it? I love the way the background of your work completely complements the advert.
