Graphics Fairy Inspiration (+vintage printables)

Thank You all so much for your wonderful comments about the papers I've been obsessed with. Your kind words make me grin so big that I get lipstick on my ears! oxo



Here are those images I used to make that ephemera paper (6 of these are from the Graphics Fairy & the rest are a whack of papers or printables that I made/scanned & thought you might be able to use for something or other...)




I'm sure you all know by now that Karen
is The Graphics Fairy:



If not, allow me to introduce you! :-) Karen has a fabulous assortment of vintage and antique graphics & generous terms of use that allow creating projects for commercial use. She simply asks that you credit & link her as the source. And that you don't use more than 6 of the images per project or web page.


Here are the 6 Graphics Fairy
images used to make

those Ephemera paper freebies:

-1-
Bookmark Postcard Ephemera

This image is the backs of some Ladies Postcard Bookmarks
Please credit The Graphics Fairy if you use this image.
Her post for it can be found here:


In order to make it fill as a pattern without the

darker image of the stamp, I've cropped it:
