Gibson Girl Card

One of my favorite stamp companies is Flonz Craft. They are based in New Zealand and make the most beautiful stamps. Many victorian, gibson girl, and 19th century images plus so much more. You can order from Flonz Craft's site or on Ebay. There shipping time is very fast and the stamps are of great quality.

I love the brown, beiges, and copper colors in this paper.  There are lovely swirls and french text in script.

I distress the edges of the paper and then inked them with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I then added stitching.

I used paper from Crafty Secrets Typography CD (base paper and second die cut), Recollections Parchment Paper, Core'dinations Cardstock,  image of Gibson Girl from Flonz Craft,  K&Company (leaves), Spellbinders Label Seventeen.

I made this card for the following challenges:
