Sassy Queen

Happy friday Sassy fans! This is Kathrin and I am sharing a card using



To me she looks like a queen or roman goddess so she needed to shine... I colored her in reds, cream and golden yellows and liked the idea of leaving her hair white.

I used golden embossing powder to add some flourishes around the image and to distress the designer´s papers and also added some golden cord.
The wreath is by Martha Stewart and originally it´s a christmas wreath but it remembered me of those wreath made from olive branches the romans loved to give their gods.

These are the markers I used to color the image:

So, that´s it for today. Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

  3. I LOVE the sentiment and the gold and burgandy!! So beautiful.

  4. Quite stunning with all the gold embossing & the shine around her is very effective too. She does look like a medieval queen & I the wreath looks good too - it does remind one of the laurel wreaths from antiquity & yses there is something about the goddess about here - lots to think about with this.

  5. Stunning Kathrin, I love the "glow" around Guinevere and that laurel wreath takes her back to roman times !!!
