I have some lovely Photo-real stamps and I have had so much trouble not just stamping them, but also photographing them that I have nearly given up on them. Then I discovered it wasn't them . . . it was me, lol. I had been using photo-paper to stamp on and apparently that's not what you use. You use GLOSSY card. Oh what a difference. I still need practice but the results are so much better.
So, I stamped my Flapper (from The Stampsmith Flaper 3 plate) onto Glossy card using Saddle Brown StazOn, then cut and mounted her using Nestabilities Ovals. The bg paper is from K&Co Isabella pad (so pretty) and I added some eyelet lace across the middle. Behind my image I've added some postcards (Aspect of Design in Stampin' Up Soft Suede) and then on top a little frame (again SU - Four Frames coloured with whispers pens) with a greeting, and a flower. Finally I've added some pearls.
I'd like to enter my card into the Vintage challenge at Moving Along with the Times.
