Another Swap

Hey y'all,

I keep saying that I won't swap anymore but find myself compelled to join these fun swaps at different NING sites that I am a member of.  Wait until you see my Halloween stuff - but for now, look at the vintage tickets I made for the swap at Mini Album Swaps (MAS):

 I found this image and background paper (already stained music sheet) online (free vintage images).  I added liquid pearls, some gems for "fire" and stringed beads for the elegant chains on a chandelier.

 I made a tussie mussie to go with the corset (another find on the internet - same place), added the pink bow, flowers and pearls that those things usually had.  The purse is a charm from my stash.  I ink distressed the edges but the stains on the paper were already there with the image.

 Paris is a distinct destination, so I love creating around that theme.  I made the passport and added a bit of lace for the vintage look and placed a charm Eiffel Tower to give it that more pronounced look.  The image I found on the internet was the Eiffel Tower with the lady - how cool is that?

 This bicycle was too cute to not take up.  I added a burlap bag I quickly glued together, added mail from clip art on MS Office and it becomes something great for the swap since the bike itself is vintage.

 Look at this chair! I added the bird cage, an organza bow, some lace and pearls to the background and image that was already there.  How fun is this?

 This one was a little hard to create around but glasses, a newspaper, a charm compass and it seems like something for a man, right? Don't you love his umbrella?  Heehehe...

This image just needed a little pearl beads, a ribbon, a flower and a bit of lace and she screams vintage.  Don't you love it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting! :-)
