A Royal Encounter

Twisted Sketch #117 was just what I needed to use some of my Heidi Swapp transparency pieces which I had been playing with aimlessly for a few days beforehand. I have turned and mirrored the sketch, but hopefully you can still see the likeness.

I loved the frame effect in the sketch, and my new Gottacraft kit starring Authentique Blissful papers had a sufficiently regal tone to them to enhance my 'royal' photos taken a long time ago at Hever Castle. I made the flower using some Basic Grey velvet ribbon and a brad from MME Lost & Found 2 collection, (as are the others used), printed out my journalling in an old style font aptly titled 'Blackadder'! and cut my 'long' (the twist in this week's sketch) title on the Cricut - thank you Debbie.

Three little fluted circles using my new 5/8" punch finished off the LO nicely. Thank you for visiting.
