for frames to arrive,
let's look at

The original (sold) is a monoprint
with acrylic and watercolor on scans
of Fortuny fabric.
That design atelier's great patterns
are a joy to see.

The smiling heart and beads are painted
over a Fortuny border design. 
The flower hand-print is on very fine cotton.

This portion of the scan
shows a little of the frayed cotton edge.
I usually employ watercolor or gouache for my letter forms.

The crown's edge and face perimeter show 
the oil monoprint's sketchy line quality.
