Vintage Tuesday

I recently found a great blog that posts two free digital vintage images each week that can be used for card-making.  There are some wonderful and sweet images available there.  One of the images from yesterday was an image taken from a 1920's magazine featuring two children watching a boiling pot.  I used some great paper by Basic Grey that features old-fashioned wisks and mixing bowls to use for this card.  The children are colored with Copic markers.  I wanted to keep the colors and embellishements simple, so I only added Really Rust cardstock and antique looking lace and brads to complete the card.  I had to print the image at work, as they have a much higher quality printer than mine at home.  When I tried to print it at home, the image came out too light.  I really enjoyed working with this sweet vintage image.

  1. Thiis beautiful. Thanks for taking the challenge.

  2. This turned out super sweet, Claudine. I love that you've combined the vintage image with the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers.

  3. I love how you have used this image, and the papers really compliment the image. Well done!!
