Queen of the Castle by Lynne Moncrieff



 
 


Oxford Impressions Castle Keep stamp set is showcased on the card I am sharing with you this week. I used homemade spray ink to prepare the cardstock but you could substitute with Distress Stain Spray/Distress Stain or any of the other vast selection of ink sprays available to purchase from That’s Crafty! The hint of Antiqued Bronze creates a lovely shimmer and glint on all the prepared surfaces. 

 

Supplies


Distress Inks:- Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint
Extras:- Lace, twine, button

 

Instructions


Spray white cardstock with green inks (I used homemade spray inks) and a hint of Distress Stain. At the same time prepare a shipping tag.
 

Once dry repeatedly stamp text stamp onto the prepared surfaces. Tear cardstock to size and create a cardbase. Use the remainder of the prepared cardstock to stamp all the elements you want to use on your card.
 

Onto the prepared tag stamp the castle with StazOn. 
 
 
 
 
 

Tear and distress edges of all elements. Adhere lace, lightly sprayed with the inks, onto the top edge of the cardbase. Compose the card, embellishing with scraps of stained seam binding, a button, etc. Finally thread twine through the keys and attach to cardbase.
 
 
 
 

 

Until next time,

 

Lynne

  8. I love the heraldic look to this, Lynne. It reminds me of something maybe from The Lady of Shallot or the poem by Tennyson that begins, 'The splendour falls on castle walls...' I wonder what treasures those keys might open up? Beautiful, fairy-tale look to this creation. xx

  12. Julie Ann is RIGHT - it is something from a book... splendor of castle walls. And I kept thinking - dear me - It should be The Splendor of Moncrieff Castle. What a fabulous piece of artwork. j.
