It Was The Crown That Set Her Apart From The Others

A vintage card using the If The Crown Fits stamp plate from Creative Expressions.

My silhouette image has been given a regal touch with the crown above her head. The background is a piece of white card coloured with brushed corduroy and walnut stain ink and then spritzed with water.
I have added two stamped keys either side of the silhouette and added to mini tags stamped with CROWN and SPARKLE both from the same stamp plate.
I thought the sentiment from Wendy Vecchi's Regal Art Stamp Set was perfect for my piece and has been stamped with black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks adding black soot the the edges for definition. I have also added three dimensional flowers using the Spellbinder Spiral Blossom Three die, colouring with Distress Inks and added black soot to the edges. To add to the regal element I have added golden jewels to the crown.
To complete I have added a black key embellihsment and matt and layered my decorative piece onto kraft and black card stock.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all my followers and visitors a Happy Christmas and very Best Wishes for 2013.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Your spritz and flick is gorgeous on here Tracy, and I think the 5 matting and layering layers make the card look very regal. I love the little tags on the keys too, it makes the card come alive. This is fab. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas Tracy. Michelle xx
