New Challenge: Simon says Stamp and Show Kings and Queens!
A beautiful Monday and a new challenge from Simon Says. For my entry I have created an ATC (Artist Trading Card) that measures the standard 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". I first used Tim Holtz's color blocking method, applying the ink pads in various colors directly to the card, masking off areas with post-it notes until the entire background was complete. My lovely queen is the "Prom Queen" from Stampotique. She was stamped on the card with Black StazOn ink. Catslife Press makes the phrase "Queen Bee" and her wings are really flowers cut in half, made by Jolee, like the flower topping her crown. I stamped the crown, also by Catslife Press, with Ranger's Embossing Ink and then applied some Queen's Gold Embossing Powder and melted it on with my heat tool. You can almost her her buzzing can't you?
