Red White and blue for the diamond jubilee for simon says..

Firstly welcome to my new followers and thanks for taking the time to stop by, makes my day!!

Well the wonderful celebrations are over but here is my diamond jubilee, red, white and blue piece...and yes you have guessed a tag and some fab new Wendy stamps:
so I started by embossing the flourishes from a Tim set using weathered wood distress embossing powder, when dry I coloured tag using fried brick and broken china and flicked with water and dried.
the crown was a grunge  one that I  applied silver gilding flakes too and them some bedazzles for added bling!

the Wendy stamp was stamped on a piece of Eco board,edged with DI and some bling added under her royal cheek, and some red added to her lips.Well she is the Queen after all!
to finish I added some vintage ribbon, stained with fired brick distress stain,a little crown charm and some mini Tim numerals..

I will be adding this to my new etsy shop later.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
