Vintage


I made this piece for the Arty Girlz Challenge #46 - Vintage. I'm not really sure what defines a vintage card, but I have used an old image, and paper that reminded me of something you might find on the inside cover of an old book. The image is an illustration by Warwick Goble and was a free clipart sample from Dover. I printed it on watercolour paper for texture. The patterned paper is Bohemian Threads by KaiserCraft. I LOVE the paper. The pearls are from Kaiser too.

The little dog is actually serving to hold the piece upright. I haven't made it a card yet - not sure if I will, or use it for something else - and it didn't want to stay up just leaning against something.
