I used vellum for this lady. First I inked only the frame part of the stamp and stamped it in white. Let it dry, then I did the rest in black and embossed it 
with black embossing powder. I embossed her sleeves using a grid, and made little dots with the embossing tool, to make them nice and white.
 I also dry embossed the oval frame, her hat ribbon, dress neckline and the dots in the flowers. Added some details on the frame using the needle tool and some liquid pearls. Then I colored the image using markers on the back of the vellum.
