Queen for the Day by Lynne Moncrieff


Sometimes it all fits into place! When planning a gift for one of my lovely friends, I looked through my stamps, focusing on Parisian themed sets. One stamp jumped right out at me, a stamp stating Marie Antoinette. With my friend’s name being Marie, it couldn’t be more perfect.



Oxford Impressions:- Court of Versailles, Wonderland (larger crown), With Love and April In Paris
Ranger Memory Frame 1.5”x1.5”
Jewellery Findings
Jewellery Pliers
Extras:-wooden box (with glass aperture), fragments of lace, pearls and beads and French book text.



Memory Frame Key Chain

Apply Fresco Finish Vintage Lace to French book text.

Stamp Marie (cover Antoinette with a Post-it-Note to avoid any ink touching this part of the stamp) with small crown stamped above.

Onto another piece of the painted book text stamp the larger crown.

Embellish both pieces with fragments of lace adhered with Gel Medium.

Sandwich the two stamped pieces between Memory Glass and insert into Memory Frame.

Attach swivel clasp and beads to the frame.


Apply Gesso followed with Alice Blue paint to the box.

Stamp Mode de Paris, Paris and crown repeatedly onto the box (top and edges).  Apply a thin layer of paint to push back the stamping, before proceeding with another layer of stamping.

Finally, pop the keychain into the box. 

Until next time,
