All About Love Challenge

Welcome to the Impression-Obsession 'All About Love' Challenge.   I have a card to share with you today.
The main image is Impression-Obsession's Cradle Song H13754.   I stamped with VersaFine Claire nocturne ink, and water colored the image with Daniel Smith watercolors.
I used the metallic Inca gold Fine Tec Artist Mica watercolors to paint the flourish on the design.   I distressed the image with TH distress inks along the edges of the design and behind the flowers.

I die cut the Ornate Square Frame DIE390-ZZ, from copper shimmer paper, and adhered it behind the image, which I had fussy-cut. 

On a yellow distressed card stock panel, I stamped the Boho Star H23028  and parts of the Cover-A-Card Music CC029 onto the panel with mustard seed distress ink, then attached the stamped/framed panel.

I added a strip of the same copper paper along the left side, and attached it to a square white card front.
I also distressed the edge of the yellow panel to give the card a vintage feel.

I felt this image really speaks of love in it's purest form; that of a mother's love for her child.
