A tag for a challenge over at Tag Along  the theme being Kings or Queens or both I brought this set of Paperartsy a little while ago and hadn't got around to using it.I coloured the background with DI then stamped the queen in the middle I then made a mask of her so I could put words behind her then with a dotty stamp went around the edge of her in blue when I took mask off she didn't stand out like I wanted so went around her again with mustard seed distress paint to make her stand out I then messed up with colouring so ended up stamping her again cutting her out and attaching to tag.Various words and sayings were added and a metal flower in the corner.
