Glamour Girls

That’s the theme chosen for us by Terri this week on Sunday Postcard Art.  Found this picture of a glamourous and sultry looking Ava Gardner in an old 1950’s book I have aptly entitled ‘Glamour’ and thought it would be perfect to use. 

Scanned it and printed it out, attached it along with some odd bits of scrapbook paper to a postcard blank and then added some coloured pencil, bit osf stamping and a bit of embossing (unfortunately the subtle shimmer of the old gold embossing powder isn’t picked up in the scan).


Now I feel the urge for a sunday afternoon in front of the tv with a nice cup of tea watching old black and white movies!  As much as I love modern movies they really don’t make them like they used to!!
