The joy of my desire

I seem to be in a monochromatic phase these's large ATC  is another black and ivory piece but this time with a touch of gold bling. It must have been my trip to NYC this weekend that influenced me. We visited Brooklyn Heights and the bold graphic inspiration was everywhere and NYC always has a touch of shiny bling too! I'm posting this on Fashionable Stampers Challenge #15 Monochromatic plus one color and also Stampsmith TSC#27 Love and Lace challenges.

The gorgeous flapper stamp from Stampsmith was my inspiration. I stamped her on a painted Retro Cafe Art dimensional ATC center. This was layered on different patterned  papers and a filigree paper border was added too. Some dyed lace, pearl and gold buttons are the sweet embellishments. It is ink kissed with gold sparkly  ink, gold Stickles and cream colored pearls. The sentiment is from a book of poetry and says "The joy of my desire."

Hope you will find joy this week in whatever you desire.
artfully yours, gerri
