Vintage Lady


Stamping, masking, embossing, inking and distressing onto a tag….back into my comfort zone.

I liked this image so much…so feminine… added a few more features….beads, flowers and a lot more embossing on the actual image itself also added a butterfly and stitched on some lace.

Coloured the dress with faded jeans ink and also marked certain areas with an embossing dual pen then added moon glow embossing powder blue gold…did the same with the butterfly double embossed with different coloured embossing powders…effect is really lovely and very shimmery wish you could see the real thing. Masked off the image to stamp the background detail. Other colours used are Victorian velvet and shabby shutters.
