Welcome to this week's Blogger's Challenge. Click here to see more wonderful works featuring the theme of Valentine's Day.

thank you for visiting my new blog, please subscribe again in the side bar subscription box.
For those of you new to this blog, I have more creations at Here
And just to feast your eyes on some awesome talent, take a boo over to Artistic Oupost Blog.
Some very WOW talent on this blog.

I labored, over what to make, for this challenge. I love, love these vintage/nostalgic images from "Artistic Outpost". I have several of their sheets and love the quality of the rubber and perfect impressions.

These images evoke fond memories of my childhood days..the little gal reminds me of the " Campbell's Soup" girl.

The cardfront was done on white cardstock and completed as one layer only. I used a masking technique for the circles and the girl image. Inks were applied with sponges using Stampin Up's New In-Colors.

For the background I simply swiped leftover inks from my painting wells, onto white Cardstock. Next, I applied different mediums to acquire an old Vintage look using gesso and white craft ink. I completed this background using Black craft and a texture stamp by Stampendous.





Happy Valentine's Day




Thanks for stopping by

Connie, this is amazing. I think the photo turned out well to show the that there is no layering. Your masking is something to do die for. This card really must have taken a long time to do. Good for you.
