Vintage Sports

At Sugar Creek Hollow our new theme for the coming  week is 'All about Sports'.
The Olympics are due to begin soon and we would like you to feature Vintage Sports Images.
Last night the Olympic Torch reached London, where it still  has many places to visit before the Opening Ceremony.
Remember we like to see your projects using a vintage/shabby chic style.
Please pop over here for all the details and see what we have all been making.

 My card features three very handsome chaps, posing in the latest style of bathing wear.
I was having difficulty finding a suitable focus, a friend kindly gave me this one.
I cannot imagine our Olympic teams wearing this sort of  costume, but I bet it was all the rage way back then.
The backgroumd papers I think were from Kanban.
The other images are from a Graphic 45 sheet.
All additional shading is Vintage Photo distress inks.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
