Vintage ATC's

This time I started with four challenges in mind:
One that asked for ATC cards
One that asked for anything BUT a card
One that showed an add for inspiration, where I took fashion as a keyword
and One that asked to ink an old stamp.

I started with the stamp. I knew exactly which one it would be, and stamped and colored it 5 times.
Then I went for the background paper, added the lace ribbon, and the shett of music notes.
I played with locations and configurations until I was happy and then I glued everything down.

Then I went to making 4 more.
and Ooops.....
When I came to colour and age the music sheet I picked the wrong ink. A darker one...
But I liked the total look of the card with the darker sheet, so I left it.
Which is why there's one card with a lighter music sheet...

These are the challenges the ATC's participate in:

If the shoe fits - inspirational challenge
Incy Wincy - Colour me wonderful
Pals Paper Art - Anything but a card
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of layering
Quitoxic - Ink up an old stamp
Magical Crafts - Vintage

Wonderful works of art. I love the feeling that the lighter sheet music is for an afternoon dance. A wedding perhaps. Very lovely. Thank you for playing with us at Opus Gluei.

Oh, these are so lovely - I love anything with a vintage and romantic feel to it and so these "sing" to me!!! I'm so glad that you decided to participate on our challenge and I hope you try out others in the future as well!
