R is for ... Reine

As you may know I am taking part in the Dictionary Challenge over at The Craft Barn (you can see the details here). I am using an old English - French dictionary so my entry for this weeks challenge, R,  is Reine, which is French for Queen.

I've kept the same overall theme going on these pages (colour palette, vintage look and my pointing hand stamp) but as anticipated I didn't have anything very much in my stash which had a regal theme so there is very little in the way of embellishment on this page.

Anyway here it is...

And some detail shots...

The Queen image is a download from The Graphics Fairy (you can find her amazing blog here) which I have fussy cut and then over stamped with a metallic gold fleur de lys, and added glitter to her dress and crown.

This shot shows the metallic gold crown stamp used to add interest to the Antique Linen DI background

Close up of the embellishment, the mini playing card is from a Christmas cracker, and the leather fleur de lys has been inked with Promarkers to match the colour palette. A washi tape border grounds the image and a Prima flower adds texture and dimension.

Well that's all for now, see you again soon.


  1. I really like how the queen stands on the border with the cool embellisments beside her.

  2. A wonderful page with great details.

  3. Great page and word choice


  4. Beautiful page, M.M., your queen looks very regal, love the sparkle, too! Valerie

  5. Just in-embellished enough for a very classy looking page. It really gets my attention. I love it!

  6. That is a beautiful queen image and I like the layout of your page.

  7. Love you queen of hearts, fabulous page.
