vintage, by accident!





I recently got a set of decoration stamps from Inka, they are 6 christmas images and their mirror images. I chose to use the mirrored ginderbread boy to make a "dangly thing" (a phrase that caused much hilarity in my 10 year old son!) to go on a card, but that could be removed to use as a decoration. this was going to be a quick clean card for easy replication, but somehow once I sat down it didn't happen like that. I also managed to get ink all over the inside of the card, so I had to line it as well, especially when I realised I would have to photograph it from the inside as well to show the reversed gingerbread boy.

as well as the gingerbread boy, I have used a happy holidays stamp and a crackle background from Inka

As this came out quite vintagy, I am entering it for theme thursday's vintage challenge
