Vintage Photos



Was having a play with one of my new purchases, cut n dry nibs. They are fab little things. You drag the nib across the ink pad and it works like a pen. Because the nibs are so fine, you can colour in very small areas in fine detail. I picked out a few bits to add colour to on the above photos, then inked over the whole lot with my antique linen distressed pad and wiped the access of with a piece of cut n dry foam. The photo on the left of each set is the original, the one on the right is the altered one

Great effect with those nibs - I wish I had got some when I saw them at the craft shop in Liskeard.

I like this effect, where did you get them!! As I have often wanted to add just a touch of colour to a photo, and have had to go through the whole photo shop thing!!!!

Well done!
