Vintage Woman in Repose

I played along with Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #123 this week to create something "very vintage". Whenever I think of vintage, this Rubber Stampede stamp always comes to mind. I pulled out a scrap of lacy dsp, along with some rose and brown papers from the DCWV old world stack and started creating. I stamped the image on Vintage Cream cardstock with Versafine Sepia ink, then embossed it with clear ep. I lightly chalked some color onto the face, hair and lips for a subtle look. 2 of the layers were stitched by machine. I used the MS doily and the EK Fleur de lis punches to make the borders. A slit punch was used to add the sentiment. I added some ivory satin ribbon and a few Blush Kaiser pearls and that's it! The sentiment is by Hero Arts.
I hope you're all enjoying your Friday and I hope it's fantastic for you!!
