I firstly took the lady stamp from the Indigo Blue ‘Pomp and Pageantry’ and stamped her in Versamark onto some purple velvet paper then heat embossed in WOW ebony black embossing powder.
I then cut an aperture out with a Spellbinder label 11 in pink cardstock.The background is an embossing folder inked up with versamark, embossed then sprinkled with WOW sea white embossing powder (off white) onto parchment paper. this was then torn to give it a shabby look.The flags I cut out of different patterned papers including stripes and flowers and added onto string. I then punched out a Martha Stuart border punch onto white cardstock and added this to the background.
The embellishments of ribbon, pins, buttons, a flourish and inked up flower all add up to the vintage look.
