Sunday Challenge No 32

This is my entry for the Sunday Challenge over on UK Stampers.
All the images were stamped in black archival ink, the large ones were masked before the 'background' ones were stamped.
I used water colours to enhance some of the stamps.
The word is stamped in black chalk ink.

March Swap

A Playing card swap was hosted by Hazel on UK Stampers last month and this is mine.
'The Queen of Hearts' on the background of the card I applied gesso with an old credit card taking care not to go over the Q's and hearts at the corners, I masked the large heart at the top with a heart cut out of the top of a sticky note. stamped a background stamp over the top when dry. The photo is from a cd of vintage photo's cut out and applied to the card with glue. The 'roses' in the basket I made into hearts with a red glittery pen and applied glossy accents over the top.Then I added a shrink plastic crown in gold and added red 'jewels' in the same way as I did the hearts.

March Inchie Swap

The Inchie Swap for this month on UK Stampers hosted by Sid was Vintage. These are mine (sorry about the dreadful photo, had some really dull days and couldn't get a good image at all!)
Each inchies has been stamped with a background stamp, coloured with distress inks and over stamped with black Archival ink and had a word added onto shrink plastic.

This is the tag I made for the flowers I took to the cemetry for my lovely Mum on Mothers Day. She is only about 17 in this photo and it is my favourite picture of her. I mss you so much Mum!
