Dragonsdream TIO Challenge #35 - Embossing

I had a French theme in mind for this week's challenge and decided on Marie Antoinette.
That immediately suggested pearls and opulence and the colour scheme of light and dark blue. The crown and fleur-de-lis go without saying.
I cuttlebugged the tag with the fleur-de-lis embossing folder and then sanded it and coloured with blue, navy and black inks.
The main image was stamped with black archival ink and edged with gold. The crown was stamped and embossed onto acetate.
The flourish and fleur-de-lis were cut out with the help of the Cricut and friend Wanda who showed me how to use it. Pearls were added to the swirls as they were Marie Antoinette's favourite jewels.
Thanks for dropping by and do please leave a comment.
