Kaboodle Doodle/Stamp Something

This week at Kaboodle Doodle theme is "Vintage". I decided to alter a clipboard purchased recently for £1.
I've used papers from the Kaboodle Doodle "Morris Dance" kit to cover the board and the slide mount. I love this particular kit, although at first I could not work out why it was called Morris Dance - then I realized that it reminds me of the work of William Morris!
The main image is a stamp by Hampton Art Stamps called Cozy Lady/Woman In Coat. I've embossed this with black sparkle embossing powder. I've also stamped it out several times using Archival Ink in sepia to make the film strip. The film strip was made using a piece of black gloss card and my Bind it All.
Other stamps used include: Hero Arts - Art, Life. Beauty. Stampers Anonymous - Captured Moments. Sentiments from Autumn Leaves.
I've used distress inks in broken china, tea dye, antique linen, vintage photo and mustard seed.
I have also entered this project for the Stamp Something challenge, which this week is to make something reflecting the cold/winter. The lady in the coat certainly looks dressed for winter weather!
