Stamp Man ATC Swap

It's the 1st June, Jubilee month and the theme at the Stamp Man ATC swap is Diamonds for the Queen.

My ATC was made with a spritz and dip background using Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick distress inks. I stamped a Stampendous crown and painted it in with the dusty concord DI and some silver acrylic paint. I added some silver and glittery gems and Beadazzles.

I hope you have a wonderful Jubilee weekend if you are in the UK. We are having a 'street party' style get together tomorrow night in a neighbour's garden and having 'high tea' just to be different! We also have a Jubilee picnic where my son lives on Sunday (if the weather holds).

Ken and I are having our diamond birthday party in July.

Congratulations to our dear Queen Elizabeth for her 60 years reign and many more to come.

Have fun wherever you are in the world this weekend.

hugs {brenda} xox.
