For your boudoir perhaps, m'lady?

A vintage old page from a dictionary with corsets on it inspired me to print an old Victorian illustration image of a woman and corset.

But it also inspired me to take it a little further. I embellished the printed page with two heart shapes that have Victorian pink roses on them, and further with a scalloped shape with another lady in a corset - this time in the color red.

This paper is from 1902, and is a genuine page out of a ledger, handwritten, and includes a purchase of a box of snuff. Around this shape, I decided to enhance with watercolor.

Altogether a pretty, romantic image for someone's boudoir. Yours perhaps?
