DT Home Decor Project - If the Crown Fits

Good Evening

This evening I am featuring the fabulously versatile set of stamps by Creative Expressions entitled If the Crown Fits.  I decided to create a decorative piece that could be showcased on a shelf or hung on the wall.  I started off with a music score background inked with distress ink: Vintage Photo.  I then took a smaller piece of card and did some ribbon weaving with gold and black ribbon from my stash.  The three crowns were stamped with: Perfect Medium Clear and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold.  The images were cut using Spellbinders Postage Stamp dies and backed on to dark brown card just slightly larger.  The crowns were embellished with gems from my stash and the phrase was stamped using  Archival Black, embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Viola Black, and cut with the fourth largest of Spellbinders Labels 28.  Each of the  corner pieces were made using Spellbinders D-Lites Fantastic Flourish 2 (about 12 layers of scrap card stock) stuck together using Cosmic Shimmer Clear PVA glue.  They were painted with black paint and dusted with the Cosmic Shimmer Gold Mica Pigment from Set 1.

That's all for now.

Lots of love to you all from lilygee.
