JFF POstcards

Hi All
The challenge at JFF this week was postcard size 4x6 it is the first time I have done this size. I decided on a theme of "something I found in my grandma's draw" that's how i got to this postcard. I chose an old forces vintage picture I have from Crafty Individuals (I love these) then I chose a paper which already had text print on and DI with bundled sage, Marigold and worn lipstick this combo gives a fab oldie worldie look. I then stamped with a TH postcard stamp and added lace which I have rubbed in DI along with the ribbon roses ( please forgive the shadow on the photo I m not a good photographer) I then added crackle accents and metallic rubs for that just found in draw look. Thanks for stopping by. XOXO
PS I will be swapping again, it is just lovely to receive other folks work so come lets have some more folks swapping! it is painless. LOL.

Hi Sandra. This is gorgeous. I really love it. Funny you used that TH stamp. I thought about using it but inspiration was lacking. So thank you for sharing your idea.
Regards Florence.

I fell in love with this when I saw it - right up my street! I love things "vintage" and this is beautiful from the stamping to the ephemera to the colours you have used.
Thank you for joining us at JFF (and thanks for the SWAP plug). Hugs, Neet x
