Vintage ATCs


I made these ATCs over the weekend using three of the images from Vintage Photo Sheet 21 from Scribble and Scrap Crafts.  You can find this particular sheet here on the Scribble and Scrap website.  There are lots of other sheets in the same section and they are digital sheets which makes them great for adjusting the size.

I've used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to change the colour of the images and then layered them on to script paper and then brown card.  I used some lace washi tape from Crafts Too and some pearls.  The sentiments are from my very old PSX stamp sets.

Simon Monday Challenge - 'anything goes'
That Craft Place Cahllenge - 'girls - no pink'
