That Sinking Feeling

For today’s post I am sharing two cards I made with images from Divas D’Este’s  Tiny Vintage Italian Postcards  CS. This CS is absolutely stunning and I deliberated for a while in my consideration of what surface I would print it onto, finally opting for vellum and glad I did as the surface is perfect for art style images.Oxford Impressions’ Venezia set was used to support the images.
The background was kept as a loose style with watermarks.The second cardA scrap of book text. By luck I had an old travel literature book on Venice which I knew I wouldn’t read again.  Mica scraps and pearls.This post was a break from Winter/Christmas but I will return on Friday with Pink Santas!

    This is just gorgeous Lynne and so evocative. I adore Venice and am lucky enough to have visited twice as Italy is our favourite family holiday destination.
    Florence is on my wish list so one day maybe – sigh!
    Hugs, Fliss xx

    Beautiful work as always Lynne and my favourite place – gorgeous eye-candy.
    Intrigued by the prospect of pink Santas – have they been at the gin?

    This is something very different- but SOO BEAUTIFUL -I love how you made the images like float in the “sky”.
    Venice is the most beautiful city- I have been there 4 times-but it is far too many years ago !
    Hugs and love to you dear Lynne.

    As always, lovely cards Lynne. Your simple treatment of these beautiful images with the lovely watermark and text background, allows them to really shine.
