This ATC started out in color (using Paint Shop Pro) with the background and doodle supplied by Authentic Artistry in their freebie. I then added the period lady and quote. The shading was added on separate layers before converting the whole piece to sepia tone. I then curled the edge to add further age.
This ATC was made in Paint. NET. The background is from a digiscrapping page by DDiva. The images are Victorian images from Dover Publishing. Shadows were added in layers. I then used the paintbrush to make the scalloped edge.
