French Kissed contest

If you're like me and like vintage images, I think you'd like the Etsy shop French Kissed and the beautiful digital scans of vintage french postcards Trishia sells there. She's having a contest until April 11th using this image that you can download from her blog.

Create something with it and email her a picture (all details are on the blog post HERE) for a chance to win some vintage french postage stamps. My project is a shadowbox. I cut apart the postcard image and slightly rearranged it then transferred it onto canvas with multi medium. Then I used the floral border from it to create a border around the opening and added 7 Gypsies gaffer tape and some Dresden trim. The main image is another one of her postcards and I gave her an elaborate Prima flower hat with pearls and a feather. Voila!
