Swirlydoo August Passion Berry Sketch Challenge

This months Sketch Challenge over at Swirlydoos is:

and here is my take on the sketch:

All the papers are from Splash of Colour, Cotswald Manor Collection.  I toned down the background paper with homemade gesso and tore and inked the edges with Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet.  I used an EK Success punch to get the design behind the photo and TCW stencil with texture paste.

I fussy cut the heart, sentiments, butterflies, and tags from the Costwald Manor Collection Paper and inked with Victorian Velvet.  The flowers are i am roses which i inked and Prima Flowers.  The lace is fancy trims from Petaloo.  

A few close ups:

Thanks for visiting and I hope that everyone had a wonderful Fathers Day :)
