These are the very FIRST cards I have tried in the Vintage style...and I am so very, VERY happy with the way they turned out. As usual, the pics do not do them justice, but trust me when I say they DO look like they have come out of Nanna's tea chest.
Once again I have used the DarkRoom Door "Noel" set that I used in the previous post. I have used Tim Holtz ink as well as an SU one and they worked BRILLIANTLY together. I liked the first card, but I thought the background was a little bare.
SU Chocolate Chip and TH Frayed Burlap Distress ink complimented beautifully. I am SOOOOOOOO in love with these images.
I also distressed the edges to add a more vintage feel.
And of course the magical "Noel"
For the 2nd card I stamped the background with the large ornament, that was stamped off a couple of times to lessen the intensity. Many "You Tube" clips were watched trying to get this technique right....and it is gunna take some time, but I am still happy.
The stamped off ornament..note to self don't press so hard next time...hee hee hee!!
And of course, the devine face of Santa in this STUNNING DP. I based the colours around the DP.
Thanks for enduring it to the end of this very long post, but I just wanted to share so much. Expect some more vintage stuff in the months to come.
