Vintage swaps and Chris' blog give away

For the Artist Trading Card monthly swap over H E R E the theme is Vintage set by the lovely Patty from Magpie's Nest.

Here's my take on the challenge.

The Images are from Lisa's Altered Art the flourish stamp from Crafty Individuals and the inks are from the new TH distress inks.

I have crackle glazed them however not good with the camera today with the migraine I am suffering.

The 3 below were created using vintage bits and pieces sent to me in the way of a swap from Contessa Kris, Thank you Kris. x

I just had to have a go using some of it.

They are not for the Vintage swap but for my own collection.

Do check out the post below for Chris' blog give away

Thanks for looking
Chriss x

Beautiful vintage Chriss, I would like to know How I could upload some swaps on yr other blog for trade looks very interesting.

I have seen some beautiful ATCs but I am a little unclear how to go about it, I can see I could say I would like them in a comment but how would they know what they were trading with? I am an Artist/crafter not a computer person lol

Love Dawn xx
