I've been making a set of 11 of these for a "Vintage Beauty" ATC swap I'm part of. You can imagine why I signed up for it - never good resist the vintage look or the chance to work in my favourite sepia tones.
I used images from a Lunagirl set of slide shaped photos, which were perfect for this topic. I used some script paper as a background, plus a sheet of tape measures, and those Kelly Panacci stamps I've used so much. I antiqued the edges with chalk inks too - another favourite technique.
This feels like some kind of faded keepsake - like a dance programme perhaps - kept in tissue at the bottom of a box and brought out occasionally as a reminder of times past ..... fanciful, me???
