Elegant Cyclist

Today, I have another lovely Victorian style stamp from Deep Red Rubber.  This is a third in a series for me and part of a card class at For Keepsake in St. Louis.

I just love the Victorian era (as long as I don't really have to live there).  I love the tea, the gowns, the architecture, the manners and so much more.  I live in St. Louis, the home of some of the most beautiful Victorian houses in St. Louis and the subject of some lovely table top album books.  So when I find something that fits in with that passion especially a stamp, my addiction kicks in and more rubber comes into the craft room to live.

The card for today has a lovely lavender design paper that I think reminds me of the old wallpapers from that era.  I have also added some lovely die cuts that carry on the Victorian scroll work theme and some beautiful paper lace.

I used muted pencils to color in the image so that she matched the older feeling of a vintage print.   And of course, any Victorian lady would never be without her pearls and ribbons so I had to add some of that in as well.  I even added a tiny pearl pin to her blouse bow.    

This card as usual for me has many different layers all popped up with dimensionals.
