February challenge

The February colour challenge on the Graphicus blog is 'brick and teal', and this is what I came up with.

The stamps came from a sale grab bag - I can't identify the roman-looking man now,(although I could find it when I first got the bagful) but he was part of a themeplate . The background was stamped first with the incipit praefatio script stamp in Marvy blending blocks shades of gold - doesn't really show up in the finished card- then overstamped with the architectural plan (from the antiquities themeplate) in Marvy shades of brown - the edges were then rubbed with the shades of brown to create a distressed look. The strip of cuttlebugged card sprayed with glimmer mists was rubbed over with the shades of brown. The roman man was stamped with black versafine onto coredinations card,and clear embossed before tearing round the edges and matting onto a torn blue coredinations card.
