Timeless Vintage

I seem to have a mental block at first with this challenge by Neet and then I went here and found this free digital stamp so felt a bit inspired. I used my new Big and Juicy ink pads and new brayer and had a go at the background then printed the digi stamp onto it. Finished off the stamping with  a rubber stamp that my daughter gave to me--I love the leaves that made corners.

So I got there in the end by adding a touch of colour to the dancers and the leaves.

Great samples from the team at Just at Fun and from the Guest Designer Sandra

I know you are new to the brayer Chrissie and you'll find you get a better result on glossy / coated card stock :)
I wonder if there is a stamp of that great image
Glad you found some inspiration to share with us at Just For Fun

Sorry if Vintage floored you Chrissie, it's a favourite of mine (but then I had it wrong if you read my blog but so do countless others)and I think a bit of lace, a flower, a button - anything like that all adds to the image.
Anyway, to your tag - glad you found something you could use - have never used a digi-image so not sure what you do with them - maybe that should be a challenge for me. Thanks for joining us at JFF - Hugs, Neet
