I just love this stamp set by Chocolate Baroque, it has all the Steampunk-y elements but in a softer feminine style. I am a fan of Steampunk, but not necessarily the very dark colours so these are perfect to incorporate into Vintage, shabby prettiness!
I used a sheet of ledger paper which I distressed and tore at the edges. Some dotty stamping also helped to give the paper an aged look. I lightly stamped the image in the background and again as a separate element which I coloured with soft pencils and decoupaged on top.
