365 Cards Day 180 Going Vintage



Today we need to use a 'vintage' image for the challenge from 365 Cards. It's odd that I just happen to have bought this stamp this last weekend.
When visiting my son in Bury St Edmunds, I discovered a craft shop which had fabulous things in it and I just had to purchase a thing or two. This Crafty Individuals stamp was part of my booty.
The Tim Holtz background paisley stamp arrived yesterday from Artymiss. The manuscript is from Stampabilities, the sentiment from MSE and the corner flourish (which I love) is from My Mind's Eye. What fun I had stamping this one!
I used Stazon timber brown, with Ranger Antique Linen for the distressing.

  3. What a wonderful layout! I don't have any type of music sheet stamps or backgrounds but I think they make cards so classic looking. You've encouraged me to go ahead and get some! Thanks.
