I recently was sent a package of wonderful ephemera from Pink Flamingo Ephemera. This yummy package was in my mailbox. Don’t you love snail mail. And when it has pretty postage and that wonderful “par avion” sticker I can barely contain myself.
Laura, the owner of Pink Flamingo Ephemera runs a handcraft business making greeting cards, decoration and gifts using vintage paper ephemera and has recently starting selling vintage ephemera packs.
Are the illustrations wonderful? I couldn’t wait to make something.
I love those layered altered projects but the problem is I have no idea how to achieve that look. My layered projects tend to look like a kid’s collage.
I decided to go unconventional and use the vintage ephemera with rice paper and origami paper and keep things simple which is more my style.
I carefully cut out some of the graphics – the crab apples and toad stools.
The second card uses the same rice paper and origami paper with the crab apple graphics.
Thank you so much to Pink Flamingo Ephemera for supplying me with the beautiful ephemera. If you are a lover of ephemera, please visit Pink Flamingo Ephemera.
