Louise Bendicte De Bourbon
This free vintage engraved portrait of Louise Benedicte De Bourbon hails from the 16oos and it's a beauty. The details in this black and white engraving are wonderful. Ms. Benedicte De Bourban must have had to sit for a very long time to allow the artist to capture her likeness through the tedious medium of engraving! You can't tell by the look on her face though. She looks quite content and at peace.

This black and white engraving came from the Wikimedia Commons portraits of women section, which has plenty of other public domain images that can be used for vintage scrapbooking.

For those who have the skills and are so inclined, the background could be knocked out and the main image used as part of a vintage vignette for a blog header, scrapbook paper or an embellishment. It's also cool just the way it is. I hope you find a good use for it.
