The Clown and the Ballerina

Playing around with a Tonic Studio die frame which I ended up embossing with some old silver embossing powder. Before I stamped and embossed, I used a stencil on the paper to give the pattern that is on there. I printed out a vintage photo on my ink jet and hand colored it a bit…
