The bicycle lady, paris circle, and Columbia bicycle advert are from an unmounted 5"x7" sheet by Victorine Originals . The verse is Penny Black by Mo Manning diecut with a Stamping Up punch. Also used a clear acrylic postcard verse stamp.
To give a shabby chic look, I distressed the edges of the background layer (a piece of printed paper from my stash) on which is stamped a script verse, and smudged with Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks. Also distressed the Columbia advert.
I made the flower from tissue paper with Tim Holtz Tattered Flower dye, sponged with Tumbled Glass and Tea Die, stamped with a script verse in blue, spritzed with Biscotti Perfect Pearl Mist. A brown ribbon rose sits in the centre.
Some vintage lace also adds to the shabby chic look.
