I was playing with brown, cream and gold – this month’s ATC theme on KCUK – and messed up (firstly cos the text stamp I thought was clean had green ink on it and the gold didn’t colour it, then cos the ink on my image transfer wasn’t quite sepia, having more of a reddish hue), so played some more and they became vintage ATCs.

I need some to take to Port Sunny with me on Saturday, so I’m quite pleased that it worked out this way, to be honest :)
