Vintage ATC

I am back with my second post for Scrollworks. This sweet image is called Sally and is found here.

Stamp image using Versafine Vintage Sepia on white cardstock. She turned out much softer and more muted which was the effect I was trying to achieve. Add golden & flesh tones using watercolor pencils and aqua brush. Cut out image. Ink image with Versamark watermark ink and heat emboss with clear embossing to bring out the highlights of color.
The background is stamped using Mirror Mirror. The sentiment is called Wonderful You.  Accent the ATC and images with a lock and key charm and a touch of ribbon and twine.
Next Friday, I will share a tutorial on the photo stamps and the different types of inks and papers that produce different effects.


  1. LOVE this vintage card! You are so versatile and talented!, Suzz!! That pops of yellow are gorgoeus in this! I wish I could come stamp with you !!
