Lovely in lilac`

Dug out this old Stamp It stamp for the Flonzcraft vintage stamping challenge which is "Olde Worlde", I think this pretty lady is Edwardian so hope she is olde worlde enough.  I don't know why but I have never coloured her in anything but lilac and green so here she is all dressed up again in the same old colours.  I made the background with distress inks, three different shades, the I tried stamping a large lace stamp with water, didn't work too well so I then overstamped the lace stamp again with dusty concord and also bits of French writing , didn't want to cover it up too much so just added the bits of lace and ribbon and a couple of pins.
