A Set of Vintage Atcs

I have created a lovely set of Artist Trading Cards...the theme is Vintage.
Usually when I am faced with that theme, I think  of Victorian style and fashion, ladies, flowers etc.....but I fancied doing something a little different.....

So I decided on a predominantly male theme, it was a good excuse to use up a few of these vintage passport style images that had been given to me a while back.
Top Row 1 & 3 have my own background, just a couple of scraps that I had left over from a bigger sheet that I sprayed with acrylic paints. have backing paper from my stash...the good thing for this project is you get to use up your scraps.
I've layered the atcs up with mesh, corrugated card, tickets,labels, lace,raffia,string and  buttons...
I'm pleased with these and will use them in a swap...they are also my entry for the challenge here....
Hope you like them.....
