#TBT Measure of a Life

imageI’m revisiting one of my fav vintage stamp sets, “Measure of a Life”.  I love the images from this set and the sentiment, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.  Eleanor Roosevelt”.  I embossed on vellum and inked both the front and the back.  Ink doesn’t dry as fast on the vellum and you can swirl it about with your paintbrush on one side and the inking on the other side stays where you put it!  The only downside is that the water curls up the edges, so you have to weigh it down under several books while it dries to get it flat again.  I’m “on the fence” with the ribbon – what do you think?image
