Inspiration from an Old Stack of Photos for Anything But a Card Challenges #16 - Week 2

Happy Sunday - I hope you are having a great weekend! Today is week two of the current Anything But a Card Challenge... Challenge number 16 – "Inspired By."

REMEMBER this challenge blog is ANYTHING and EVERYTHING... except for Cards. ATC's aren't greeting please link up your ATC's!!!

You still have one more week to play along and link up via inlinkz froggy. Anything But a Card Challenges Challenge 16 is "Inspired By." Please click here to head on over to ABAC and see more fantastic projects shared by our amazing design team AND submissions by all of you. I have an altered/stamped project to share with you today.

My project I'm sharing today is an ATC I created that was inspired by my Father and hand tinted photography. "Smokin' Gal" is created with a stamped image was a lady leaning on a post smoking. I have some old photos from my father that he took on a trip to Europe when he was 15. He took many amazing black and white photos and I immediately thought of this photo to go along with the stamped image. My father was traveling with friends of his parents with a bus tour around Europe in the early 1950s. This particular stop was in Koblenz, Germany and he made a point at telling me why he took this photo - being one of three men on the tour, at every stop, the ladies lined up waiting to use the ladies room. He was probably sick and tired of this at the time, since they traveled to Paris, Italy and Switzerland, plus many other destinations, too. I know that even over 50 years later, we GIRLS are still standing in line waiting for the Loo - and there are never, ever enough. Enjoy! Sb

  1. Had to come over from challenge page and say how much I liked your project. I love the way you have incorporated the stamped image with the photograph so wonderfully and the post is fun too! And so true! Vee xx

  2. What a wonderful photograph taken by your father... I could look at the women in that group forever, and your wonderful stamped lady, leaning there, looking at them is such a brilliant addition - great make!
