Bathing Beauties and WOYWW #156

Last weekend I went to a Rubberstamp and Paper Arts Show, and one of the vendors had a fun make and take that incorporated vintage photos.  Jill, from TJ Designs, showed us how to make a card with a collage background using strips of paper, chalk inks, and rubber stamps.  She designed the stamps and the papers, and it was fun having her teach us how to put a simple collage together.
Of course I had to buy some stamps, paper packs and photo sheets, and that is what is on my workdesk today.
Can't wait to make some fun cards with these Bathing Beauties!
To see some other work spaces and all the creativity that is out in blogland, stop over at Julia's blog called the Stamping Ground

  15. Love the photo sheets! I am seeing them in use a lot more often these days. I always wonder where people find them to purchase though. Your collage cards came out excellent. I find that medium hard to do. I can do it in a class under supervision though, so it must be in me somewhere!

  16. Aren't those bathing beauties fun, very useful images in this era of loving the vintage!

  17. LOVE this collage bg -- it looks so fun to do! [popping in with "Help out" Cath from Moxie Fab~] :)
