I decided that I would try to make a vintage card for those club members who prefer the vintage look. For some reason it is really hard for me to do. I think my brain just likes straight clean lines and things that are ripped or dirty (sponged) should be thrown out.
In any case I made this card using the stamp set called Postage Due. It is really the only set I own that is vintage looking. I decided, that although it kind of was a pretty good attempt at the vintage style, it just didn’t look right. So I took a picture of it and sent it to Buffy. She is the queen of sponging and ripping and I knew she would figure out how to fix it.
Well, Buffy had some terrific ideas. She said it would look better if i reversed the colors and that it was too heavy on the left. So this is my second attempt after her helpful suggestions.
Much better, don’t you think? I decided she did such a good job that I sent her the card instead of saving it for my club members to make! Thanks, Buffy, for my lesson in vintage, although I will never be as good as you!
