A new challenge theme on Try it on Tuesday and their design team call is still open. Hop over and take a look if you're interested. The actual theme is Memories, perfect for the Abraham Lincoln plate from Oxford Impressions.
First of all I stamped the lady with Gathered Twigs and embossed the image with Distress Powder Walnut Stain, then I colored the background with Distress Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet and stamped on with Chalks Blushed Rose (searching for a matching color I remembered the drawer containing the chalk ink pads :D ).
The paper border is a die cute and the edges are distressed with Gathered Twigs, still in a sewing mood I sewed the border onto the card. The small lady is stamped with Archival Coffee and colored with Distress inks using a waterbrush. It's always great to have the matching colors :) All egdes are distressed and colored with Gathered Twigs.
