Broad Ribbon- v2 new scratchboard

A while ago I created a line drawing intended to become a new clayboard engraving.  As you know, I usually include some kind of cord or ribbon snaking through my messy bouquets of fantasy flowers.  This time I wanted to make the ribbon more of a focus so I made it broad and decorated.  Here is the line drawing.

And here is last night's one movie work.  I transferred the line drawing onto a board with xylol, which you can see in the photo on the bottom right.  I was watching Elizabeth I on Masterpiece Theatre while etching and liked how this design kind of goes with a Renaissance look - so far. Stay tuned for more.
