I made this card at the weekend, but it has had to wait to be published until after the recipient had her birthday!
There used to be a range of stationery here in the UK that said something along the lines of 'I am the queen of everything' - ahem, I don't want to offend anyone, but there is a strategic expletive omitted! Well, this was extremely apt for my chum, and it has always stuck with me. So I decided on a stamp set from Wendy Vecchi which has a lovely gurlie silhouette (which also is reminiscent of my regal mate), and a good phrase.
I put my hand in the cupboard that had all the card blanks, and the one I pulled out had a glossy finish, so it had to be alcohol inks for the background.
I stamped the sentiment, and swooshed the same distress inks over it, and then cut them out and mounted them on foam squares. I added stickles to the word 'crown' to make it jump out a bit.
Hope you like it, but more to the point I hope SHE (who must be obeyed!) liked it too!
