vintage sailors

A vintage sailors deco today.

This was created for a swap. It was based on the photo inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room.

A deco has to be relatively flat as it travels by mail. Each participant creates one page in the booklet, and when it is full, it is sent home to the owner.

The background is embossed with a CB folder, then lavishly inked in vintage photo DI. I love the way the embossing comes out more prominent than the rather garish colours of the paper.

Challenges for this creation:

Thanks for stopping by!
