~SEPIA VALENTINE GRAPHICS - Sharing Pretties With You~

Perfect For Romantic Projects~

Blurred Edges to soften

While working on several special order Valentine Projects I couldn't help but share with you two darling vintage prints that were passed along to me by a friend. I've used both cherub postcard images and made them into charming little Sachet Pillows and they came out very sweet! I'll be showcasing them later this week...stay tuned!

I just love the Sepia tones, don't you? Possibilities are endless! I think either image will look wonderful used in a collage, shadow box, made into hang tags, etc. I removed the writing in the second of each of the images for you and blurred the edges to soften them a bit as well!

Lovely Sepia Tones

Blurred Edges to soften

Feel free to copy either of the graphics and use as you wish! I'd love to see what you've come up with when you have time!

Happy CREATING on this frosty Winter Day~


PS: I use Paint Shop Pro10 to manipulate my vintage ephemera prints, postcards and other graphics. There are many programs out there to choose from. This one just happens to be the once I chose.

Rebecca- what lovely graphics! do you use photo shop to remove the writing? I don't have a good photo editing program- use Picnik online but would love to find a good and relatively inexpensive photo editing program= any suggestions?

I do so enjoy your gorgeous blog and your sweet entries that are full of your heart!

Hi Rebecca,
Just wanted to stop by and say Hi and to wish you a very wonderful and blessed 2010. I was away from Blogland for a few days and couldn't wait to visit and see what everyone was up to. Thank you so much for the vintage prints. My little head is already working of some Valentine's Day ideas. Thank you. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Rebecca, you have been one busy, talented woman of late. Your china cabinets are wonderful, and I'm so glad you didn't take the bite at the 500 dollar mark, way too high! You've done a beautiful transformation. Now I'm looking forward to your new dining room!
Thank you for the precious valentine graphics! so sweet! Are you all still under snow? we are and expecting more!
Have a wonderful week!

Rebecca.... These sepia graphics are pretty. In looking through some of my family photos I noticed a few of them had been hand colored. I really liked this look & I got some pens for this. What fun.....
Great Post!!

Dearest Rebecca,
These sepia postcards are darling...so very sweet!
I've been thinking about making some Valentine wreaths decorated with small hearts. Just thinking about it for now. Got way too much on my plate and hope to have a less busy February. Need prayer!!!
Have a great new year and may God Bless you!

Rebecca, love your sweet ideas! I have a question perhaps you can help me with. When I find a nice picture I like on the internet, how can I know if I am allowed to copy it to my computer and use it for something I would like to create? Thanks for any advice.

Rita said...
