Queen for a day...



OK.....time for a bit of quick play after all the heavy layer upon layer work of late.
The theme over on TMTA is 'Queen for a day' and so I had a play around with what was on my desk with some leftovers etc. The shell stamp is meant to represent a royal crown or head dress, or even something like the queen wore in Alice in Wonderland,....but the more I look at it it reminds me of Hair from The Hairbear Bunch heehee.......'Help help here come the bears' lol
Anyway...had a go, and had a chuckle in the process. Great theme.

Sensational Jo!
I totally adore your colours and beautiful papers. Your sweet image looks just wonderful with her crown!
You are awful telling me about your thoughts on the Hairbear Bunch though. Made me laugh. I used to love that show.
Such beautiful work!

I love all the toning 'leftovers' - and that stamp - you have such a wonderful variety.

How on earth you fit so much onto such a tiny area.

Where do you find your fabulous images - and those rosebuds and ribbons.

Oh my - I wish you did workshops and lived nearer - I have so much to learn!

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to leave a comment on my blog. It was very much appreciated.
