Queen For A Day

Just using the colours red, white and blue makes everything look so patriotic.
For the background of my card I stamped with blue ink, embossed with clear powder then inked around the edges with barn door before stitching the lace around the edges.

I cut out a TH dress form shape, triple embossed it then stamped into it with a Craft Individuals Flourish Stamp, added some red ribbon as a sash across the bodice part then dotted with liquid pearls. I also triple embossed a piece of red card, added perfect pearls (forever blue and pearls). Inked up my Queen of Hearts stamp with white ink then whilst still molten I stamped into the red card. Did the same with the TH crown stamp but this time I triple embossed onto blue cardstock.

Stamped the two crowns and butterfly onto skeleton leaves then cut out, you have to work very delicately when doing this because the leaves have a tendency to tear.

It’s such a great feeling when you start looking for things in your craft room and you find something you forgot you had.
I was looking for a sentiment to go with my card when I came across this box set of Anna Griffin Stamps and inside was the perfect sentiment … Queen For A Day.
