Another of my wall hanging cards + freebie

One day I stumbled upon an old photo, a so called tintype,
of a beautiful young girl with gorgeous dark curly hair.

One of the most stunning tintypes I ever saw.

For my sweet blog friend Ira I made another of my wall hanging cards.
(Among other things which I will show you later, by and by.)

I found the original tintype on pinterest.
(With credits to Crafty Dogma.)

It was quite dark. I altered it in photoshop so it could be printed and used in arts and crafts.

And I love to share it with you
so you can also use it if you wish in your own work.

Wishing you a beautiful week!

xx Wen

Ps: I'm still busy with the "making of" that I promised in my previous post.
It will be online this coming week. UPDATE: you can find it HERE.

  2. It's absolutely adorable Wendy.
    The girl in the photograph is exquisite - I imagine her mother tied her long hair in rags the previous night in preparation for the photograph!
    The result is wavy, shining hair – so beautiful.
    You have kept the embellishing simple which I love - and focused on the subjects beauty!

    Thank you for generously sharing your wonderful tintype - what a find!

  4. I'm sure Ira will be thrilled with your lovely creation!

  5. Nou en of! Het is weer zo'n meesterlijk stukje creativiteit waar ik enorm van kan genieten. Mij vielen ook meteen haar prachtige ogen op, die blik, in elk opzicht een pláátje! Wat heb je haar enorme eer aan gedaan door zo'n mooie muurhanger om haar heen te bouwen en het geweldige is dat ik er live van mag genieten, niet alleen digitaal, ha ha ha! Nogmaals heel veel dank lieve Wen, je bent een schat! Dikke kus, Ira xox
