Crafty Catz #90 - Vintage Look
Totally Papercrafts #74 - The Beach
I do love this stamp from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque). Both the main image and the poem on the post card are from them. The post card header is from Creative Expressions.
To keep the vintage look I have used cream card for the base A5 blank, which was tinted at the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The main image was stamped on watercolour card with Timber Brown Stazon ink and the picture was water coloured with three different tones of Distress ink to give an aged sepia effect. The edges were then tinted with more ink to give a vignette. Crocheted lace was bonded to the back of the image . The post card was made in the same way, without the lace.
To finish an old gold bow was added as an embellishment.
