In the Conservatory

     Happy Saturday to you all.  Any Saturday is a happy Saturday don't you think, especially if it involves stamping.

      Today I have another vintage styled card for you.  I think this one has a rather elegant feel to go with the Victorian Evening Dress.  


For this image I stamped Victorian Evening Dress  twice, once on cream card stock and once on pink design paper.  A the image stamped onto the card stock was colored with pencils and odorless mineral spirits than cut out.  I cut out the dress on the image on the pink design paper and then glued it to the colored image.  the image was then popped onto the cream mat.  

Dies were used with vintage style paper to give the vintage feel with a seem binding ribbon glued to the corner and draped and glued to the edges of the card.  Finally adhesive pearls were added to enhance the image. 

If you are interested in vintage women stamps Deep Red Rubber has several very nice images including
