Be The Crown

Be the Crown !!!  okay, okay, I've watched Miss Congeniality one too many times!  I was working with Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 stamps, developing an ATC to use for both the Gingersnap Creations Crowns challenge and the EWV Yahoo Group Make Art challenge---I pieced together one of Wendy's sentiments--and the phrase just happened!!!!  Works for me.....

About the Gingersnap Creations challenge:  this month's theme is royalty.  This week it's the Random Redhead challenge: GC91 Crowns.  I'd been wanting to work with this Studio 490 stamp set for quite some time and was so happy that I could use it for my Ginger Design Team work.  I hope you find the perfect crown in your stash and join in the fun.  You have until March 13 to post a link to your creation on Gingersnap Creations

About my ATC:  tag with distress ink spritz technique, cut to ATC size.  grunge paper butterfly.
InksArchival: black, sepia;   Ranger Distress: fired brick, spun sugar, tattered rose.
Studio 490 stamp setsDreams of Art (background lines), Art by the Number (corner dotted scallop, scroll border), Art Fit For a Queen (crowned face, words from a sentiment), Make Mine Mini Art (butterfly)

About the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo! Group.  We recently started a Make Art challenge series, based on Wendy's books, using Wendy's stamps.  I made this ATC for the first challenge.  I was away on a trip during the time of the second challenge, but plan to enter the third one which is posted today.  Work is posted in our EWV Yahoo group, and members comment there on each others' work.  The challenges and time frame for completion vary based upon the challenge.  Once in a while, there will be a prize for one of the entries, chosen at random. Some of the challenges have a swap option.  Lots of fun.  If you'd like to join in, there's a button on my sidebar that leads you to the Yahoo group.  But you can also take a short cut by clicking HERE

I've also posted in my sidebar a badge/link for the Ginger Design Team call.  Click on the badge to learn more about becoming an Official Ginger.
