how long will I love you?

Good evening! I am very late posting this week for the sketch challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. I was a bit late starting this project, but really wanted to use this week's fabby sketch.

For my project I have created another mixed media collage. Expect to see LOTS of these in 2014, as I am loving doing them, although I am still experimenting, so it will be interesting to see what my work looks like in a year's time. Sorry, my photo is a bit blurry.

For my base, I started with a sticky backed canvas sheet. I will mount this onto chipboard, but haven't done so yet, hence why it looks so wonky.

I then covered it with cardboard scraps, but even I am struggling to see those now.

Mediums used: distress paint, distress stain, gold gelato.

I have used a Memory Box ~ Butterfly Vine stencil, combined with texture paste at the top.

The dimensional butterflies were stamped from the Tim Holtz ~ Papillon CMS106 stamp set and cut out.I have also used these stamps as part of my background.

The image was created from a Penny Black ~ Melle Papillon stamp. Creating that dress, very nearly drove me crazy!

She is set onto a Spellbinders die cut. 

The sentiment: How love will I love you?

When I showed it to my other half, he said: 'that's a bit pessimistic isn't it?' Well it comes from a love song of the same name, by Ellie Goulding. 

Go check out the song if you don't know it:

Thank you for looking.
