Photographs & Postcards – Try Tweaking!

angel-baby

I’ve shared my love of vintage postcards in past posts…today I want to share a bit of photograph-tweaking using an old postcard. This beautiful postcard features a Victorian angel in feathers on the front. The postmark of 1911 is still visible on the back of the card. Postcards of this age are copyright free and available to use in artwork and designs.

I usually don’t use an image in a stand alone fashion when I use copyright free art. So, I tweaked the original through Adobe Photoshop and one of my very favorite sites, PicMonkey.

I treasure my little cherub, and even better, printing her/him out does not take a lot of printer ink. I am going to use this image for some gift tags and possibly in the future for baby shower gift cards. I enjoy the thought that this artist’s work lives long past the 100+ years ago it was created. Maybe our combined efforts in this altered version will live for 100 more. Thanks for looking!

    1. Thanks so much. Some folks collect postcards that were never used. I like to find the ones with messages crammed onto the back. They are sweet and such a link to the past. The difference in the way the words are used, the sentiments, the handwriting, most often in pencil rather than pen…they are a joy to me. I love your expression too…’a wisp of the past’…beautiful.
