I used Photoshop to achieve this look. First thing I did was change the color of the stamp from black to a sort of brownish-sepia tone. I removed the white from the digi as well leaving the background empty.
I then created a background in some of my favorite colors.
Placed the altered stamp on the background and then using some flourish brushes I completed the look.
I then used one of my favorite quotations - "I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set it free" ` Michelangelo , and added it to balance the image.
I am really very happy with the way it turned out.
