Blogger's Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Hello to Shadesofstamping readers, Iam posting for Bloggers Challenge, which is late...
Lisa gave us a sketch to follow.  Take a tour HERE and see what the other players created.

I love this line of stamps from Stampotique, " Queen of Life"...We are all queens of somthing.
The backgrounds on my cards are  various methods  using a variety of  mediums from Technique Junkies Newsletter:  Glimmer Mist Water Color Art - April/May 2010, Worn Wallpaper - Aug/Sept 2010. 
I masked the image and sponged with an array of different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  The embossed background was done with Tim Holtz Texture Fades Folder called " Patchwork".

Thanks for stopping by my blog
