Regal colours

Happy Friday, it's one of my days for being at home today. Yay.

I have been snatching the odd hour or two over the past few days and made a tag which has been inspired by a few challenges. Firstly Simon Says Stamp and Show - Kings and Queens, this little one is definitely 'in waiting'. Secondly Crafter's Cafe have this amazing colour challenge - red, purple and pink and I added some gold to enhance the royal look. Charisma Cardz want Vintage.


I used PPs to create the background, blending the red, pink and purple together and stamped over with gold stazon. The image was also blended with the PPs and stamped in black archival ink using a TH stamp.


The crown and wings were also stamped with gold stazon. The flower is prima and a downloaded butterfly.


The message I found as part of a longer sentence on the internet and printed it using PSE and a digi backing paper.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
 I shall be back on Sunday with a new PanPastel UK DT piece.
Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

That little chap always looks so grumpy!
The intense purple works so well for the crown theme and I find the textures and patterns so interesting.
A wonderful tag.
