Sunday Postcard Art

This week at Sunday Postcard Art the challenge is "crackle". I stamped my background with a crackle stamp and also used a stamp kissing technique on the Stampers Anonymous flourishes using the same stamp to remove ink in a crackle pattern before stamping the flourishes. (You can click on the image for a better look.) A crackle pattern always makes me think vintage, so I completed the collage with that theme. Image: Paper Whimsy, other stamps: Hampton Art Stamps and Stampington.
