Shabby mono anniversary

It's a while since I used this stamp and instead of using the whole thing I decided to crop it to see what effect it would have.  The stamp if you don't know it is from Stamping Bella - Emily and Ryan Under Umbrella.

I've used proMarkers to colour the image, cut it out with a Spellbinders die, distressed the edges then used two lots of Tim Holtz in distress ink.  The look I wanted was of an old style sepia photo.

The design papers are form Lili of the Valley and First Edition.  All have been distressed before layering up.  The sentiment, from a Lili of the Valley art pad, has also been distressed and I've coloured it with the same ProMarkers as the image.

Final additions, all keeping in with the monochromatic colour scheme are some pearlised self adhesive gems, some tiny wooden hearts, a resin corner, a flower stem charm and a love charm.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look
