Vintage card

 Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
Just a quick post to share a little vintage inspired make.....
I have discovered a new favourite stamp set.....
Tim Holtz Numeric set is just soooo cool and so versatile!
I stamped using Wendy Vecchi Archival ink in potting soil....
what a gorgeous colour!
I used a mixture of distress inks from Walnut stain, gathered twigs and vintage photo
and some Claudine Helmuth Gesso
I used one of my old vintage  photographs of two ladies......
they were sat on a hillside, having a break from working the land 
I used remnant rub ons, Idea-ology and an old key from my vintage finds
I added some stitching using my sewing machine and
 added some vintage text from an old book
Thanks so much for passing by The Little Shabby shed

cheerio for now
