Queen Bee


This is a tongue-in-cheek entry for the Monday blog challenge at SSS. This week's theme is "in the family" and mine happens to be royal.

The tag was made from a scrapbook paper collection by Authentique called Classique Pretty, a bit of Tim's Wallflower paper stash (top), and a frame from Tim's Industrious stickers which I distressed a bit by sanding and painting.

The background in the frame was stamped and embossed (Hero Arts Lace Flower Cluster) then I applied an image transfer of the Queen and her accoutrements. I tinted here and there with distress ink and paint and dirtied up the inside edge of the frame with pencil rubbings. I intentionally offset the frame but, in hind-sight, should probably have centered it instead. It also needs a ribbon topper which I didn't add because then I'd have to photograph it instead of using my flat bed scanner.

I really need to buy a camera and take some photography lessons!
