Vintage Postcards with Country Roses ~ Waltzingmouse

For my Power Poppy post, click HERE.

Hello my friends!!  Happy Monday!  Today we're combining both sets: Vintage Post Cards and Country Roses 

So today I used the "mini" images to create this itty bitty 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" post cards for some more vintage decoration.  I stamped the Post card images with Smokey Gray Versafine.  The Country Roses were layered with just one ink: Champagne Metallic Encore Pigment Ink.  I then distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and spritzed all the cards with water to age them.  I love how the inks responded.  The encore ink lost it's sparkle, but faded nicely to give it an aged appearance, and the Distress ink ran a bit aging the paper.  Lastly I tied them all together with soft pink seam binding ribbon, and added a little enamel heart to the stamp center.

Here's a little look at the other cards in the group.

And lastly, here's a close up of some of the Post Card stamp Images.

That's it for today.  Be sure to join us tomorrow for the Waltzingmouse Hop!

   Happy Stamping!

Love the post card stamp! One could actually make a 2-sided card and put it in the mail as a regular card if you add postage.
