Silhouette Fortnight at FSC

This fortnight at fashionable Stamping challenges we have the theme of
The design team have created some wonderful samples to showcase this theme and here is mine
Using one of my many gelli prints as a background I stamped Dina Wakleys Grungy Silhouette and Grungy Star onto gesso painted book paper and also directly onto the gelli print, I cut out the paper ones and stuck over the top. I added a crown to her, painted with Paperartsy fresco old gold and stamped with Kaisercraft numbers stamp,to make her a queen. I have also added machine stitching which I seem to be a bit addicted to at the moment!!
I added some texture with various stamps and splashes of white paint using a credit card.
Sentiment is from Wendy Vecchi's Regal Art set.
Why not pop over and play along with us this fortnight with your silhouette creations. Remember we are a stamping challenge so stamping must feature strongly on whatever you create. You will find all our challenge details Here.
I will hopefully see you over there.
Thanks for visiting and I will see you soon
