Paperbabe Stamps Challenge 113 ~ Sketch (mid challenge inspiration)

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you're having a lovely week, I have been very sluggish after my very hectic year so far, the Hochanda shows and my brother's funeral really took it out of me, but I actually managed to get some ink on paper, or should I say I actually managed to finish something creative, as I have quite a few projects on the go and none of them even close...

So, there is still plenty of time to take part in our current Challenge, and I'm sharing a little project which could possibly suit a couple, loved one or an anniversary, etc...

I think I have followed the essence of the sketch pretty closely, if you turned it 90° anticlockwise, and then mirrored it, obviously, which I only realised after I stamped the first line of decorative detail using the designa tweed stamps, I love how the elements are separate. I also stamped the words above and below, I think it gives the vibe of a playing card? Like a King & Queen, now I should have added some crowds.
I started this with a little play on the gelli plate using evergreen bough distress oxides as a base colour and flicking on some watered down brushos. Some yellow, violet, gamboge and ost red, phew...
I stamped the no.1 flourish, their faces, the hearts and details in versafine clair twilight, as well as blending the same ink around the flourish mask to help frame her face and using the male face mask to add a little depth.
I used the brusho's as watercolours to add some details to their faces, but I think I'm in danger of making them look a bit close to demonic or maybe a bit vamp... this is what happens when you binge the second series of Sabrina hahaha.

Well, I pretty much used most of the latest release for this, apart from the hands which now I'm thinking would make a great addition to have her hand stamped on his chest...
