Vintage men - Just for fun

Hi everybody, I'm a bit late posting today as treatments started early. now I have a break till after lunch, which is very welcome.

This week I am playing as guest designer over at Just For Fun where the challenge this week is vintage men. I made an easel card. I stamped a blank postcard with vintage London images (stamps from Artemio) after distressing with antique linen and vintage photo. I stamped the sandwich man image- from Scrollswork -with Adirondack espresso onto glossy card, and then decoupaged him onto the London background. I used some steampunk paper as a background. The clocks and inside image are from Graphics 45. I fixed the image inside with large brads which look like cuff-links. I haven't added a sentiment yet, as I don't know to whom I will be giving the card.






That's all for today, hope to see you again tomorrow for Jason's latest adventures in Belgium. Take care and thanks for visiting!
