"Recently in a class, I was asked if my girls have stories behind them and the answer is, of course they do! As I sit and draw I can't help but come up with stories. This is Ruby. Yes, I watch Downton Abbey and can't help but be infatuated with the clothes! Ruby is from this period and as I was drawing her I couldn't help but think about what life must have been like in the 20's. We all watched The Great Gatsby last year and this little lady seemed to be flirtatious and maybe a bit of a scandalous flapper. I'm thinking she may have even gone to Paris and hung out with all the artists and writers. Perhaps she may have even done some modeling for the well known artists of the day. I do know she would not have been happy at home making jam or sitting in the parlor doing stitchery all afternoon. She wasn't a bad girl (well maybe a bit naughty) she just wanted to experience the excitement of a new era."
I created this as I was inspired by Fashionable Stamping Challenges #100 post. They had an awesome blog hop and their Design Team really rocked it. You should go check out their creations!
I wanted this piece to be sturdy so I cut my tag out of a heavy chipboard box that I had saved for just such an occasion!
