Hello everyone, hope you are all well, I was hoping to post another card last night, but my ceramic workshop went on till 6.30, and then I still had an hour and a halfs drive home, so I was exhausted when I got home, and just about went straight to bed. So, I thought the first thing I did this morning was post a few cards. The first one today is for Kaboodle Doodle Challenge - "Vintage", and for this, I have used a Dimension Fourth Ltd stamp, not sure of the name, but it is a stamp of a lady in Vintage dress. I simply added a few touches of blue with a Sukura Gel pen, and a little grey in her boa. I then covered the image with clear embossing power, and heated it with my heat gun. This was repeated abour 4 times, and the aim was to try and make the picture look like an old photograph in a frame. The backing paper is a Kaboodle download from their "grey" collection. I also ran a piece of grey card through a "Doily" paper punch, and finished the card off with some pieces of ribbon, and some silver gems from my craft stash.

Hi Louise,

What a great card, the punched border really suits this card and the paper works so well with the image too.
