M for Mercy

Isa set us the most cruel challenge for M. No stamps!!!! and pink and brown colours. Oh my, I thought, but it encouraged me to have a ripping time (sorry!) and use some papers. I feel that this could do with some rub-on swirls, but I don't have any. I daren't draw them - I'm bound to go wrong!
I couldn't decide between Mercy and merci, but in the end made her into another Lady of Virtue. ---

Inks : VersaColor Bisque

Extras : Queen & Co mini brads; acetate image from Katy's Corner; PP by Fancy Pants, Crate Paper, and others unknown; pink paper; MM pink eyelet; beige and pink sheer ribbon; R&L RubOns

A tough challenge but you came through it well. The paper you chose to rip juxtaposes well with the unripped paper onto which you've mounted the photo. Well done.

Thanks for playing

You do the most interesting things with your vintage images. I love the idea of no stamping from time-to-time. Nice work, as always.
