Vintage dreams

Had a lovely time playing with my new Fresco paints and texture paste (more of which later on) after getting some tips from a very good friend Laura who has been so generous with her advice - isn't blogland a lovely place?  You just have to ask for help and someone will always give freely of their expertise.

Anyway, the tag background was done with the Fresco Finish Ice Blue (I'm starting with the light colours first) and overstamped at the bottom in white with a lace stamp. The vintage stamps were from a lovely free gift on the cover of a recent Creative Stamping magazine - I love this set.  The little flowers stamp was also a freebie with Craft Stamper and I did a bit of touching up with a white opaque pen before adding a bit of twine and a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker.
Getting on now with a little canvas and the lovely pink Fresco paint and texture paste - ooh, I love getting messy!  Thanks so much for stopping by and listening to my ramblings.

Entering this into the Fun with ATCs challenge - Vintage.
