messing about!

A friend gave me this stamp of the lady with a fan ages ago as she didn't know what to do with it, neither did I!  Anyhow while looking for something else I came across it and thought she would fit Lunagirls challenge Victorian flowers and fans. Stamped the image on a piece of DP and then randomly stamped with an old set of Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque I think) Stamped some extra flowers and hearts and cut them out, added a few white highlights to the flowers and a bit of lace.  I Decided the lady needed some makeup but the eyeshadow looks a bit lurid on here, anyhow just a a bit of playing which I enjoyed. Oh I nearly forgot to mention its also ties in with the language of flowers bit as of course Roses = Love !
