Back to Vintage
Good evening, well today I've finally managed to get quite a few cards made.
As some of you may know, my first love is "vintage" especially the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods (closely followed by my new love of "cuties") and as it seemed like ages since I'd made any of these and I was in the mood today, I thought I'd make up for lost time.
I've actually made 6 cards today, although I printed the images a couple of days ago, so if you are visiting me over the next few days, be prepared!
I've been collecting vintage images from all over the place for years now, so I have a huge amount of images but no idea where they originally came from I'm afraid.
All of the cards are very simple, as the images are so fabulous I didn't want to detract from them by making the cards too fussy.
The card I'm sharing today has the image simply mounted onto some brown cardstock and then onto the main card which is black, the border is from a scrapbook kit that I bought ages ago (and had forgotten about until I found it hiding at the back of a cupboard last week).
I think she is so gorgeous with her furs and her dogs and I hope you like her too.
