For the Princess

The Swedish Princess Lilian, who was born in Britain, has passed. She was a lovely Lady, I met her when I was young, she was so full of life and fun.

I tried to catch the warmth with the colours, yet the sadness of the occasion with the heavy black frame and the regal feel with Golden and Silver Perfect Pearls.

Items used:
Chocolate Baroque tree and sentiment stamps
Memories black ink
Distress inks
Sakura metallic, white and black pens
