This is for IC335 and Victorian Trading Company is our inspiration site today. I was inspired by Roses & Violette Photo Surrounds found here: http://www.victoriantradingco.com/st...p/iPM2516.html The minute I opened this site I thought of my Rubbernecker Vintage Sisters image. There are two different ones and they are adorable. They remind me so much of photos my parents had.
I stamped the image with Chocolate Brilliance on watercolor paper, heat set and lightly watercolored the image to look like the old fashioned sepia photos that were hand colored. I used my new Spellbinders Floral Oval Die for the frame and Floral Flouishes, Martha Stewart Flower Punch and EK Success Rock Fern Punch to create the floral spray around the photo. I wanted the flowers to match the clothing and cheeks of the girls so I punched flowers using the vanilla cardstock and lightly sponged the edgees of the petals. I formed them with a stylus and mat. I placed pearls in each flower center to bring one more Victorian touch to the frame.
