Created this card using a Penny Black stamp, whimsy Cat w Camera and bird on cat's head to make for a humor camera thought of 'watch the birdie', I bought 50% off at Michaels last wk. To color the stamped image I used Spectrum Noir markers that I had won along with Crayola pencil colors. Used a Spellbinder die to cut out stamped image. For background color I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Used a Hero Arts stamp sentiment 'Smile.' Used a TH embossing folder, retro Circles, that I thought complimented the circles on front of a camera. 

I like cameras vintage & new and photography. Photographed with a Kodak camera that I used when younger. Does anyone remember what photography was like before 35mm & digital? Does anyone remember the square flash bulbs that were used with this type of camera?

  1. Cute, cute, cute! I love your cat card! Great deal at Michaels - so jealous! Yes, I remember the old 35 mm - I have an old camera and I keep wondering what pictures are on it, as the film had not been used up and not developed. I don't even know if you can get it developed any more. Have a great day!
