Lady cards

It is harvest time here in Wine Country so you can see why I love this stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. This beautiful Arts & Crafts period image is very fun to color. I did two prints, one in Black and the other in Sepia Versafine inks. The lady was cut out and popped onto the sepia print. The rosy background is pink cardstock embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and painted with a blend of shiny rose acrylic paints. I was thinking this would be a good card for the Gingersnapcreations Harvest challenge. http://gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com/2009/10/gc25-chestnut-challenge-harvest.html
This lovely lady is a digital freebie from Clearly Vintage. http://clearlyvintage.blogspot.com/ I colored it lightly with colored pencils. The background was made with clear embossing on newsprint and then adding ink to cover. You just wipe off any from the embossed area. I love this quote from Abraham Lincoln. Yes, the card is for my mother. Both the backgrounder and sentiment stamp are from Cornish Heritage Farms. The corner pieces are die cut using a Cuttlebug die.
