A Vintage Lady

Isn't she lovely? The vintage lady is a stamp by Magenta, which happens to be one of my all time favorite stamp companies. She was stamped with black pigment ink and fine line black embossing powder was then applied. The image has been lightly colored with pencils. I carefully cut it out with a scissors, applied 3-D double stick foam to the back and attached to the card.
The background was stamped with a crackle image using Distressed Inks by Ranger, Straw. The outer edges of the card had Distressed Ink by Ranger, Burlap, applied with a piece of Cut N' Dry foam in a swirling motion to achieve the faded misty effect. The final touch was a light sponging of Distressed Ink Black Soot to give the illusion of a burned edge.
The flourishes were stamped in Distressed Ink, Walnut. I think the flourish stamps are by Basic Grey, but could not find them on their website, so, I have no clue who made them. BUT aren't they just luscious????
