|I Have a Great Mind|
I'm taking part in Lenna's (creative swaps) latest swap, which is Vintage Notecards. I've made 3 as requested.
The backgrounds are all original vintage book papers/letters/music score which has then been lightly gesso'd. The main images are all from a (very tatty) Girls Own Annual, dated 1885. So fairly vintage!
|A Birthday Letter|
I used watercolour crayon around the outside, which I hope isn't too bright, but they really did need some colour or they would have been too bland.
Finally I added vintage style ribbons, braid and buttons. I stamped the envelopes and added the same colour edging.
I'll be sending them off to Lenna in USA tomorrow and look forward to receiving 3 back from other swappers in due course.
