I was supposed to be working on a special project soon to be announced, but I found myself lost again looking through ephemera. Originally, I was in search of vintage Valentine cards, but then I stumbled upon this blond beauty. I know very little about this piece, I found her in the public domain as a publishers proof.
She had some slight damage, mainly from age and sat on a plain background with printers marks. I love the soft lines and muted tones. Although I could not let her be as she was. I cleaned up the imperfections slightly, enhanced the color and brightened up the image. I then started to layer the image with words, lace, and of course botanicals. I used my own watercolor and vintage items. I merged different images of paper to place under the address that I put in the corner.
Rose will end up somewhere in my house although I am running out of room 🙂 If you would like Rose for your home or craft project feel free to download here.
What is your favorite thing to get lost in?
Have a beautiful week!
