Sarah Kay Challenge Sketch Week 8

For this challenge this week, I thought I would slightly tone down with embellishments for a change- sometimes less is more as they say...

All the papers are from HOTP Vintage collection, I love using these papers as the image brings to me that sense of era. My black pen for accenting has been out again. The longer strips have been zig-zagged on the machine (I must say I've got the hang of it on card now). :) to the base card which I have gone over the edges with clear versamark as I wanted to add some brown chalking. Oval is hand cut using a stencil ,the sentiment is hand stamped using Melissa Frances Crystal Clear stamps in red pigment ink which is having it's last usage and looks very pinky in real, My Sweet Lily image is lightly coloured with metallic pencils, mounted on some gold mirri board and raised with foam pads. The gold metal swirl embellishment just finishes it off I thought! Have a nice evening.

Some close ups
