Queen (Dezinaworld Lace Challenge)

Well, finally got round to doing my bit for this month's challenge at Dezinaworld after a timely reminder from June (thanks!). The theme is lace and my entry is a tag as I really like doing these at the moment. They don't take too long and can always be used on a card as a topper.
Here's my tag

I've made the tag in a favourite arch shape which is a template from Hero Arts from a while back. I stamped a large background on most of it in Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink and stamped a border from Technique Tuesday Bijou Borders in the remaining space.
The gorgeous image I've used is from Dezinaworld's Shy Girls collage sheet and I chose her because of the lace collar. I rounded the corners, inked the edges with brown ink and added to the tag with foam tape.
To finish the tag, I added an antique gold brass stamping from Empire Beads at the top, stamped the sentiment by Anna Griffin in sepia ink and stuck this on my crochet lace trim. I added a Prima flower with a pearl centre and finally a crown. This is a favourite trick of mine as I don't have a crown stamp-I used 2 of the borders from the Technique Tuesday set, stamped one above the other, embossed with gold detail powder and trimmed to make the crown shape.

Fabulous tag Fliss - love the shape of it, and the rich design and colours. Beautiful image too. Thanks also for your fabulous comment on "your" cards! It's not every day you get the chance to use stamps designed by someone you actually "speak" to! Thank you also for becoming a Follower - I really appreciate your support.
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxx
