if the crown fits..

well it is Thursday
and time for another creative expressions DT make..
this time using the if the crown fits plate 
as we were lucky to have two sheets to play with..
I have chosen this one for today
another different make for me
so here is my make this week:
again I have gone for a neutral palette with this card
and included a face from the Tim sheet of stamps
found here..
I started by clear embossing the crowns on the card , to create a resist,
lots of pumice stone and a hint of black soot distress
and some flick and spritz and the background was complete.
 I added a flat and pleated piece of tissue tape,
and on the pleated piece a twist of wire
with some small beads threaded on..not sure they show
finally I added
a face stamped in black archival, the crown..cut out
and added at an angle to create dimension
and some liquid pearls for pearls..
and the sentiment
a simple make..
but hopefully effective
have a fun and inky week
