Monochromatic Magenta

I started this card with the background tapestry stamp, stamping and embossing it on the magenta paper. I liked the combination so I found this magenta designer paper which looked like old Victorian wallpaper. I stamped our elegant, seated woman and colored her with Copics. She is cut out and attached with pop dots.  All of the stamps are from the newest stamp sheet, Jane's Countryside. The coordinating ribbon pulls everything together against the magenta base card. I thought that she looked like she was sitting in a Victorian mansion; thus the sentiment "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." The stamps from Jane's Countryside are so beautiful and so versatile and such fun to work with.
