Market Street Vintage Wallpaper

Hello everyone!
I have been playing with my new Vintage Wallpaper background stamp from Market Street Stamps.  I love this stamp.  I wanted to show you some of the ways you can use this stamp and achieve very different looks.
I used the same background paper and stamped 1 in Memento Bamboo Leaves green and 1 in Memento Summer Sky blue.  2 very different looks.
I really love the look I achieved by stamping the image onto this finely dotted patterned paper.  Click on the image to see it close up to get a better idea of what I am talking about.
Here is the card I made with it.  The little girl stamp is an old Stampin' Up stamp that I love.  It reminds me of the old fashioned toile wallpaper or fabric you would see in old Victorian homes.  I love toile!
Here is the card that I made with the background inked up with Memento Summer Sky, stamped onto the patterned paper.  The patterned paper is Memory Box.  I don't remember the name of it, sorry.  The vintage image is from PSX, The Montage Collection.  I used Memento Bamboo Leaves to stamp the framed image and colored the flowers with a Memento Summer Sky marker.
Here are some other background papers I made to be used for another project down the road.  I did, however, use the off-white cardstock and stamped the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp, using Memento Desert Sand ink.

I added some lace and ribbon and a handmade flower to complete the card.  I love the tone on tone.  I hope you like my cards for today and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,
