Baroque Memories by Alison (Craftytrog)

Hello Stampers! I have some vintage-style hanging art to share with you today.
First I die-cut my base from mountboard, using the Sizzix Alterations Baroque die.
I inked it with Vintage Photo Distress, then stamped the Regency Background with the same ink. I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress.
I used Potting Soil Archival Ink to stamp the watch from the Time & Keys plate, & Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp the mini Gibson Girl, both onto glossy card. I cut them out & used Glossy Accents to adhere them to the base, together with lace, a red ribbon bow & a pearl drop. I inked & added a Chit Chat Sticker.
To finish, I added some eyelets to the top, & a piece of  Lace Chain.
Thanks for visiting,
Alison xxx

I like the background you created, it reminds me of vintage wallpaper and wonderful use of the Gibson Girl.
