Starting with an ivory parchment card, I white embossed the doily, then shaded the card with victorian velvet, worn lipstick and antique linen distress inks. Then I overstamped the manuscript background, ferns and butterflies. The hydrangea was stamped, watercolored and cut out, then popped above the postcard, adding some seam binding and my tiny tag.
Edited to add that this card was published in CREATE: Stamping, February 2013.
