Our pretty Victorian lady (image courtesy of *The Graphics Fairy*) has been fishing for love, and she's reeling in a big one! I collaged her onto a card made of painted botanical paper (the coating of acrylic paint gives this paper a nice, leathery texture) and set her in a stage made of hearts, roses, and (real) lace. The roses are clipped from prints of my own photography. Then, I gave her a fishing pole that's a real feather! I know, that's a really big heart to reel in with a feather, but maybe we have a metaphor in there, somewhere :)
It looks great on a t-shirt, don't you think?
