Free Download! Vintage Children Photo Cards

I just know you're going to LOVE these! ... Just DARLING portraits from the late 1800s by one of my favorite photographers Julia Margaret Cameron. These are done with the old wet plate process which took a long time but created some of the most stunning photos with an ethereal, other-worldly quality. The depth, the soul, in these portraits ... oh my... simply beautiful! Try printing them on different papers. I like to use matte photo paper, but even white card stock works well.

ENJOY!

So, what can you do with these you may ask? Well, hop on over to my friend Frank's blog. He's a designer with Prima, and he has used them in his paper crafting adventures. Here's a sneak peek of what he used them for ... aren't these just gorgeous?!!  Gift tags using the new Engraver Collection from Prima. Love these! Thank you once again Frank for the inspiration!
