Mixing vintage and contemporary with Artistic Etchings

by adele on September 8, 2010

Here’s my next batch of cards before they go off to the shops. This design mixes vintage imagery and contemporary design but somehow it works, d’ya think?

The ornate – not sure what to call it - scroll (?) in the middle seems to pull the design together. And I added a bit of bling in the centre with Stampin’ Up’s new self adhesive jewels and voila!  

There’s a straight shot bottom so you don’t crick your neck. Ooooohhh, how I love this stamp set!

Tomorrow I’ll share one more idea using Artistic Etchings before revealing favourite number 2.
