Vintage lady

I love anything vintage so when I saw this free vintage digi stamp I knew it was for me. My base card is white and I've left the edge showing to pick up with the other white in the card as I wanted a sleek elegant look. I've coloured her with my Copics in one of my favourite colour ranges. The first two mats under the picture are two shades of lilac tones. The background spotted paper is from my stash, this is mounted on textured paper which I've inked with distress ink. The ink has accentuated the texture of the paper while the colour matches the ties on the ladies dress. I usually round off my corners but in this case I've not done as I feel this better suits the style of this era. No sentiment this time as I'm not sure what occasion I will use it for though I do know for who.
