A Vintage Card

I felt I had to do something today even though I still don't feel well.  I've had a couple of new sets of T!m's stamps for a week or so now and not had the energy to do anything with them.  So I stamped a few images and coloured them with distress inks and a water brush.

Then I discovered that Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week they have a game going on as it's their first birthday.  Now I have to admit I haven't stuck to the rules entirely as you are supposed to make a spinner and whatever it lands on go with that theme.  

There are six different themes and one of them is vintage, so I am entering my vintage male card into the challenge.  I haven't given it a sentiment yet as I'm not sure what it's going to be used for yet.

Fantastic stamps Sam and you have made them look amazing with the colouring.

It is fine to not make the spinner you can just chose one of the themes on it.

Great to have you join in and I hope you get well soon

Love Chrissie cxxxx

They are wonderful images Sam - so useful! Great card you made with them too and now you've finished it you can put any sentiment on you like - always a good move.
Sorry to hear you are still feeling poorly. There are some nasty bugs being shared around at the moment. Take care of yourself and stay warm.

I love the man in the bowler - makes me think of Ripper Street. The distress ink colouring goes perfectly with this sketchy set.

I do like these stamps, Sam - not often I do but this time, I could be persuaded... Sorry to hear you're not so good, though and hope you soon feel much, much better!

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
