Vintage prints . . . I just love using them!

Another entry for Debbie's vintage photo challenge in Do More with Less. A perfect excuse to use this print. I have issues with the colour in photos, though. The prints are sepia, but they always take on a blue or purple tone in photos, irrespective of whether I use natural or artificial lighting.
The sketch for this card comes from CLP Challenge Blog. And the colours are from Fashionable Stamping Challenges. As I have opted for a printed image, my stamped elements are in the backgrounds and embellishments.
The background is stamped using TH Papillon stamp onto a misted piece, followed by some inking & distressing around the edges.
The tag is cut with a CB die. It is stamped with a Viva Decor flourish stamp, and embossed in gold. Then the tag is inked to a nice dark shade, and topped with filmy ribbon.
The rose embellishment is another Viva Decor stamp. I've shaded the image with vintage photo DI, and fussy cut around it.
For more texture and interest, I added cheery lynn butterflies. They have been "coloured" in pearl pens, and topped with buttons. To finish, I added swirls and lines of dots in gloss gel.
Thanks for stopping by!
