The Three Muses "Vintage"

The theme at the three Ms is "Vintage" this week. Well more than half of what I make would probably fit this theme...
Anyway, decided to make a couple of ATCs, I had this idea of making twelve ATCs one for each month of the year and make them into a book. Not sure whether i'll really do it or not, but here are two "vintage" ones anyway.
Images are from Lisa's altered arts collage sheets. Back grounds are my own, crackles were done with Rangers Chrackle Accents then rubbed with acrylic paints and wiped off quickly. The rest is painted stamped etc.

Hi Astrid - I'm running late with my comments this week with family ties taking up all my time but I would like to say that I have scrolled through your blog which is - wait for it - you guessed it - EXQUISITE!! You should take out that word as your trademark!! So many treasures, especially your scrumptious journal pages and your elegant calendar.
I love your ATC's and the images you have used - especially the hats!! Very elegant.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
