Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE All Things Jane Austen!!! When I sat down to make this card I wanted to add little elements from all her writings. Here are some of my little inspirations from the movie. When you received letters in Jane's time letters and envelops were closed with a SEAL. I used the letter "A" stamps to create my seal. In the Movie "Becoming Jane" Cassie gave Jane her PEARLS to help fund her escape with Tom Lefroy. Bouquets of flowers that are offered to her ladies in her books. Lace for all the amazing COSTUMES, Pattern paper for all the beautiful DRAPRIES and fabrics, In Jane's wedding scenes you will find doves. You can even find DOVES in appear in Mansfield park as an offering of Love. Birds were a status symbol in this time period. I added FABRIC LEAVES on this card to represent all the millinery work ladies of this time did to pass the time. I had so many things that I could add to represent Jane and her writings but I will just have to make more cards... Darn...
In the Movie "Becoming Jane" You find yourself hoping that she will marry.. But then have to remind yourself that she never will. I love this inside view into Jane's life. How she create all these different world that she was never apart of is just amazing... Jane had such a wonderful father who wanted nothing more that for her to be happy... Jane's Mother wanted her to find happiness as well. She just had a hard time showing it.. Jane and her sister Cassandra remained close there whole lives.. One thing you will come to admire about Jane through out this movie is here determination to be true to herself... Even if it's not fashionable....
To create the seal I used a JUMBO brad. I applied Versamark ink to the brad then silver embossing powder and heat set and repeated 3 times. I then stamped the letter "A" on it.
