Whiff of Joy Challenge 29 - Once Upon A Time ... There Was A Queen

Hello and here is my entry for the Whiff of Joy challenge 29 - A Sketch.
This card is the second in a series of cards I intend to make entitled Once Upon A Time. The first card which I didn't enter into a challenge was Once Upon A Time ... There Was A Dragon. I do so love the Whiff of Joy Medieval collection, they remind me of my childhood when my head was always stuck in a book - fairy tale books, so here's my card...

Card size - 6.5" x 6.5"/16.5cm x 16.5cm

  • Stardream pearlescent "Ruby" card
  • DCWV Once Upon A Time 8 x 8 paper pad
  • Ribbon is from Raspberry Ribbons September 2008 Loving Lilac kit.
  • Gothic Window and Bricks Rubber stamps are from Cherry Pie Art Stamps. Colored with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Sansodor. The "glass" of the window was gone over with Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Glaze pen. The plain parts of the wall and edges where sponged with Versafine Smokey Grey and Vintage Sepia ink pads.
  • Queen Charlotte and Throne of course are from The Whiff of Joy Medieval collection. Coloured with Derwents again and the crown and Sceptre where coloured with a silver gel pen.
  • The crown charm I got from eBay and I added the gems/rhinesones to ti just for a bit of bling :o)
  • And the sentiment stamp, did you notice it? Up in the right hand corner , "Once Upon A Time". Sorry I can't tell you who the manufacturer is as there isn't one on it, but again I got it off eBay.

Well I'm not quite sure what my next card in this series is going to be, I've got so many little scenes in my head for these cards it's hard to make up my mind which one I want to do next. But tomorrow I'll be showing you a card that was made for me, it's so cool :o)

Take care & keep smiling
