Hi there. I saw the DT samples and I was blown away. Head over to Make My Monday and check it out! The next thought I had was, oh dear, I have never done Vintage on a card before but really wanted to give it a go. Having nothing Vintage in the way of stamps, I hopped on the internet to look at some Vintage photos.
I saw a few that I liked but this one really took my fancy. This is a postcard of a 1920's French Bride. Sigh, they look so in love and have just got married. I wonder what happened in the course of their lives. I love where her groom's hands are placed and the look on her face just tells the story.
Here is my card -
Now, this may have not photographed the best as it's not in natural light.
I have mounted the photo onto Whisper White CS and then inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink. I have also done this to the blue base panel and the circles and used it for the sentiment. I have also used Whisper White satin ribbon with a layering of blue lace ribbon. The papers in the top right hand corner have a button tied on with hemp twine. Three pearls were added in the bottom left hand corner. I have also used a crystal pin through the circles with the sentiment.
This is going to be my first attempt because I'm hoping I will get better at this technique.
Thanks for looking xx
