I photographed an old cigarette card from my Grandfathers collection and then edited it in Microsoft Digital Image Pro 7 using a texture from skeletalmess and tinting and toning to acquire a really Vintage look

What a sweet little treasure this is dear Lynne! How beautifully textured and handled my friend XXX
Oh Rosie I thought it was incredibly sweet too that’s why I wanted to share it ,my Granddad had hundreds of these collections and I was just going down memory lane looking at some of them & I then I thought maybe I could try photographing one or two , they are incredibly tiny so had to use my macro lens , but I was tickled with this one ,I mean they would be over 100 years old now ! Isn’t that amazing ! Thank you so much Dear Rosie !xxx
ThIs is really awesome. Pardon my ignorance, what is a cigarette card? Was the kitten in this water can? Barb
Well ,as far as I know my Grandfather never smoked ,maybe he did when he was young or maybe my Great Grandfather did and Granddad collected the cards from the packets of cigarettes ,I just don’t know . But they are tiny little cards that he put into spacial collecting books and the subjects are very varied . I guess they were a bit like cards kids get with Bubble Gum and things now …………but I have the books of them and they are great to look through ,I think most of them were made in England ( I am a Kiwi )Yes the Kitten is in the watering can on the little card & the card actually is named “Canned” . Thank you so much for your lovely comment Barb
