Me in vintage

Entry for Paper Playtime Challenge #10 Miss You
I love doing vintage type scrapbook pages. This is a picture of me when I was 2, around 1975. I used the Heritage Cartridge for all my cut outs. It is a wonderful cart for doing projects like this. The background paper is Paper Pizazz Chocolate pack. I inked all the sides of the pink with a brown marker to give it dimension without distressing it. It really gave it a sharp look. This is one of my favorite techniques. I also used the cricut pens to outline the scroll work before cutting and then used the brown marker to ink the sides since it was white core cardstock. Hope you like it as much as I do.
