I Won on Tim's Tags and Sunday Stampers week 205 - Killer Queen

Hello Fellow Bloggers

Firstly I want to say thank you to all my new and existing followers, it really humbles me to know that you might be remotely interested in what I do, thanks so much.

Well, a first for me!  I am actually one of the lucky winners on Tim's Tags for April - really, it is true, I have to keep pinching myself.  I have won some candy in the past but I have never won anything like this.  And as Mario himself said in his e-mail, I will always remember that I won a Tim Holtz competition first.  Woohoo!

Anyway back to the job in hand.  The fabulous Hels Sheridan (http://pinkleart.blogspot.co.uk/) over at Sunday Stampers has given a challenge to create something based on the epic Queen song - Killer Queen.  Queen are one of my all time favourite groups and I think I know every song off by heart.  I was not sure whether to go for Marie Antoinette or do something British so I opted to use the new Crafty Individuals stamps that I got on Saturday at Happy Stampers in Port Sunlight.

I have kept my tag fairly simple, distress inked the background, added the stamped images, a crown trinket and some lovely red,white a blue ribbon.  One of my favourite lines from the song is " guaranteed to blow your mind" and I think that the Olympics and Queen's Jubilee will do that this year, so I added the words to my tag.



Thank you for looking and please do leave me a comment as I love to read them and I always try to return the favour (except I am not on Facebook or Pinterest).  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  32. Ooh Anne this is so lovely. Great colours of course & the stamps look great. Your wordy bit is perfect - I guess you had to choose lyrics from one of their songs as you're such a fan. Great piece. Sx
