Queen for a day or two or maybe more!!

Over at the stamp man challenge blog the theme is queen and I wanted to combine this with the diamond jubilee challenge at pan pastels..so here is my piece :
I started by using distress crackle paint resist, using White crackle paint , setting aside to dry and then adding colour using DI.
Once dry I embossed the frame and added some more colour to highlight the raised areas.
No regal offering is complete without this fab Wendy stamp, which I LOVE!!! I stamped her onto speciality stamping paper to give supreme crisp image and then added a ranger foil sheet crown.This image was glued to a domino to give dimensions and a key and some pearls added.

I added some ideaology trim, coloured with barn door,a Wendy sentiment, crown charm pearl and vintage ribbon coloured with barn door...voila.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
Queen @ http://thestampmanchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/
Diamond jubilee @ http://panpasteluk.blogspot.co.uk/
Red, White and blue @ http://craftyourdaysaway.blogspot.co.uk/
colour challenge @ http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.co.uk/
Have a fab, fun and inky day!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
