Kings and Queens

Hi everyone,

It's February already! Time flies! Today I'm joining in with no less than four challenges today! Grungy Monday, Simon Says Stamp and Show, ColorQ and Use it Tuesday.
This week the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge is the show Kings and Queens. This card was also a good one for last weeks challenge. Kings and Queens from 30 seconds to Mars, I think that's a great song!
For ColorQ I used the following color. I don't have kraft paper, so I tried to make it with distress ink, but it isn't quite it...
The challenge for Grungy Monday is to use the crackle resist technique from Tim Holtz. I only have Rock Candy, so I had to make that work. Unfortunately, the resist is not completely the way I would have liked.
This time for Use it Tuesday I used a stamp that I've never used before, the frame stamp.

The materials:
  • Stamp: Prima Marketing
  • Foam is 1 mm thick
  • Ribbon / lace
  • Font: District
  • Water Brush

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
