Free Vintage Photo Images!

(Click on photo for more detail)

Stamps: map - Inkadinkado by Dawn Houser #8344, phrase - Stampa Rosa #C59-527, ticket stubs - I Brake For Stamps
Inks: Stampin' Up! Going Gray, Distress Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy, Staz-On Jet Black, grey oil pastel
Supplies: vintage photocopied photo (see below), oversize paperclip
Notes: used pastel crayon around corner of photo and town name for subtle tie-in, and the white part of the phrase was just stamped on scrap paper and overlaid. Photo was printed in gray scale and then aged with sponge and Distress inks

Although photo paper will usually yield sharper images, if you print photos onto regular copy paper your inks will look more uniform when stamping across the photo and onto the background cardstock.

Came across an old family photo scrapbook at a sale and wanted to share some photos with you. Feel free to use the three photos below in your personal artwork if you'd like. I have a ton more and will post them here every so often for your use :o) I'll put this and future posts under the Index of Posts category "Free Clipart" in case you miss one. They are pretty good size files (750 pixels the long way) so hopefully you can size them however you'd like and they will print out nicely...
