For my card I have used the gorgeous Darkroom Door set called 1920's Chic. I stamped the main image using Memento Black ink and then shaded her with ProMarkers. It was only after I'd finished that I'd realised I'd done it on 2 pieces of paper that had stuck together! Fortunately, I managed to stick it onto some card and all was not lost ! The embossed panel is a Stampin' Up EF and I stamped the card using the Stampin' Up background stamp called En Francais, before I embossed it. I've rubbed Old Paper DI over the top. The background is made using one of the stamps from the Darkroom Door set, and I've coloured the card using Old Paper Distress Stains before I stamped on it, then whizzed around the edge with my sewing machine.
The advert is from the Tim Holtz Adverts stamp set and I've added some little black gems to it. The flower is made from crinoline using the Tattered Flowers die and I've coloured it with Barn Door DI. The ribbon is seam binding which has also been coloured with Barn Door DI. The gorgeous filigree corner embellishment is one of the gorgeous items that Linda has in her Etsy shop. (The seam binding and the crinoline are from there too.)If you're looking for some embellisments that will make the difference, make sure you pay Linda's shop a visit.
