Scrapping Outback July challenge

The Pieta (1498–1499) is a masterpiece of Rennaisance by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St Peter's Basillica in Vatican city.

Though I am not a Roman Catholic, nor intensely religious, I have to say there is something about this statue that stirs the emotions. It made me cry. It has beauty like no other statue I saw around Europe.
Michelangelo certainly knew his stuff.

 To scrapbook it, I needed something special.
First, I matted it on beige vellum. Under that I have placed parchment then finally, a marble toned paper from Hot Off The Press. That was all mounted on cocoa coloured cardstock.
I've used 2 vintage look washi tapes,even the cameras worry me, but it was popular with photographers so I can justify that. I've used a Kaisercraft Christmas tag as my journaling card.
