Vintage Note Cards for Lenna's swap

I haven't been in a swap for awhile, but my friend, Lenna was holding a Vintage Note Card swap and I couldn't resist to get back to some paper cutting!

I decided to dust some stamps off and use glossy paper and permanent ink to create the photo-like look.  This was done with black india ink.

On this card, I used one of the graphics that Lenna included in her PDF instructions.  I printed out and mounted on bookboard and used inks to colorize it!

This is the same stamp as above but artist brown permanent ink
was used for a more sepia-tone look.

and with this lovely lady once again, I printed on glossy card stock and colorized with inks.

These will be making their way to Lenna early this week!  Looking forward to seeing my returns as there are many wonderful artists in this swap!  Thanks for looking!

Mary I am so glad to get your lovely email with links to this place where I can come and visit you!

Your cards turned out beautifully. The bits of lace are so perfect for this.

Your header is wonderful. That should be printed out and framed Mary!
