Play Date Cafe Challenge 37

The theme this week in Play Date Cafe was 'Provencal-Style'. Our art is to be based on the colors shown in the challenge picture. I tried to combine the theme and colors in my image. I thought this French market scene (OnyxXpressions/Sunday International) depicted the feel of Provence and I tried to use the colors. My tans and beiges are a little darker than the theme image, but are in the same family. Like the pottery, color is added as highlights. I used Creative Inspirations paint to highlight elements in my image. Around the stamped image I used the Technique Junkies torn frame technique. The blue background paper is from the Tim Holtz paper stack Vintage Shabby. Hopefully, the viewer can feel the Provencal-Style from my work.
