A couple of vintage cards which I enjoyed making. I really went to town with the ink pad and a sponge on the top card. I am always too careful but I thought, well what the heck for once and actually it went o.k. If I look at the second card, the lace looks so bare. The green holly image was not intentional, it was on the scrap piece I just happened to pull out and I thought it fitted - not going to be too perfect on my next vintage cards... lol.
Actually I never plan my cards - all I have is the image to start with and then I start building around it with anything my eye catches... if it doesn't fit, I take another piece etc.
Thanks to Nancy Dooren from The Vintage Stamper for her generous free images!
