Vintage Collage Swap

Here's my items for the vintage swap below. These are going to Jan just as soon as I can get them in the mail. For the postcard I used stamps from Hero Arts (lady) and Lockhart (inchie border) and some pretty Basic Grey striped paper. The roses are real dried flowers. Jan lives in Alaska so I feel good giving her a bit of summer to get her through the winter!

On the arch I used stamps from YanKiwi (key) and PaperArtsy (ration book). I aged the yellow Fleur de Lis with alcohol inks and covered it with Glossy accents so it wouldn't scratch off.

I had some much fun doing this swap and was so excited to get it out in the mail that I forgot to take photos. Well DUH.

Anyway, I am loving what you did here.

By the way, I really like the vintage gothic arch. I like the warm browns in the color scheme.

If there is righteousness in the heart,
There will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character,
There will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
So let it be.

Merry Christmas!
