Imagine by Pickled Potpourri



Today I'm featuring one of the vintage collage images from Pickled Potpourri, Imagine.  This is from a by-gone era, but I love the pretty dress and the mirror.  I colored the image with Copic markers and put a frame of florals around her.  The background is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I thought it looked similar to the bricks in the image.  

Come on over to Pickled Potpourri and see the wonderful digital images available.
