I've used Taupe, Nougat, Chocolate Pudding, a touch of Rose and Squid Ink. I wanted to create the impression of aged ephemera, but I've experimented with some mark making using everyday objects too - like washing liquid lids.
Tea-bags seemed like the perfect accompaniment to vintage themed cards and I incorporated this one, with a little sepia stamping, into the background.
The poppies were particularly suited to the Vintage theme, I thought.
to create a birthday card for my mum who was 86 on Friday!
And one last card.
There really is so much you can do with these images. They are great for journals as well as cards, but I can foresee some lovely projects using them with canvases, home-decor pieces and fabric too.
