Collage Obsessions - Longing


Thanks to Itkupilli and Elegia for the great challenge and beautiful image. I made a digital stamp/brush with the image and placed it over a background paper by Joanne Brisebois. The background and butterfly are by Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics and the bridal couple partly obscured are from Tangie Baxter also at SBG.
PS - This collage is NOT autobiographical!! The only longing I do is wish I had listened to my dear old Dad who told me NOT to do it (get married that is).
