Sometimes it takes a while for things to come together to make a finished piece of art, such was the case for the Queen. I tried a gazillion papers for the background, and nothing did it for me.
I am a little late on the Stampotique Designers Challenge, SDC 197, Tin Is In. I knew exactly what I was going to make, but I just couldn't get it all together for a finished piece. This background was made following Kate Crane and her Journal Soup class and was sitting on my desk. (Truth be told, I have been struggling with the tech's used in the class to come up with a great background, finally accomplished it on this one....and just liked looking at it! LOL, thought I'd try to re-create this in other colors kinda' thing now that I finally got it.) So it jumped up and said, hey girl.......use me!!, and here it is.
Isn't she amazing, Mz. Queen Butterfly!
The B'fly is a tim die, I used metal, then painted it with black paint, embossed, sanded and added metallic pens back on for color. The wings are curled slightly on the corners for dimension. Of course you know this is Queen of Everything, by who else but Kate! I'm going to frame this and put it on my wall as a true "feel good" accomplishment.
Have a super week everyone! hugz...
