Sunday Stamper - Week 208 - Her Majesty

Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Jubilee Sunday to you all. Firstly, many thanks for all the gorgeous wordy entries for last weeks challenge. This week, here in the UK, Jubilee fever is upon us. (as usual, the good old British weather has turned... wet and windy!) Anyways, in keeping with the festivities, I have chosen a royal theme this week but so everyone can join in, the theme is RED, WHITE & BLUE which means that covers loads of different possibilities. To join in with the theme is simples: make a little something - it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here with a link to the place you are showing your entry. You can also join in using Facebook/Picassa/Flickr etc or bob an email over to me. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday June 9th 2012.


My entry this week is a smidge patriotic, using Papermania papers (couldn't resist these, I know, I am not supposed to be buying papers but.... ) I covered an 8" shadow box and added a little frame to the insidey bit, also covering this with papers. I added some hand cut bunting to the top inside of the box and to tone it all down, used a piece of Cut & Dry with some watered down SnowCap Dabber. The stamping was done with SnowCap Dabber, using my favest script stamp and those diamonds that I seem to use on everything too... appropriate this time though, being as it is the Diamond Jubilee :O))



I added a few more diamonds in the little frame using Vermillion and Manganese Blue Archivals. The rose is from "that" Studio 490 flower stamp, on Grunge, coloured with Fired Brick DI and popped onto the little frame with a couple of diamond pins behind it. There's a Cash Key dangling, using Screw Eyes and a bit of stamped paper to make it dangle. I finished by adding a few more bits of Idea-ology. Check out the ickle date stamping... it is the ancient one that Grim found in the loft; seemed perfect to add it to the frame.


So, there you have it... a very patriotic entry... however, you don't have to go down this route if you would prefer to make something that is just red/white & blue then that is fine too. It is blowing a hooley outside my window and I am just hoping that it clears up before this afternoon... one of the greatest spectacles to ever be seen on the River Thames will be happening this afternoon... I am nabbing front row seats in the living room... I cannot wait to see Her Majesty on her Royal Barge... tis very exciting indeedily! Right then, I best go... I need to iron my best frock and dust off the hat - well, I need to look my best for Her Maj after all! Thanks for looking.... have a fab week! TTFN

PS... how very remiss of me to forget to mention that the song title is another Beatles song - last song, side 2, Abbey Road... just in case you were wondering lol

Rita said...

A very Jubilant good morning Hels. Your shadow box is fab, as usual lots of your shabby chic going on too. Need to think about this one. We have sunshine here in the West of Scotland, but it is a tad windy though. Hugs Rita xx

Buttons said...

It's that flower again!! Works a treat on this box. Must admit I have lusted after this whole Papermania range but thus far have resisted, but your project has weakened me!
Good weather for wind-resistant ducks here in the middle of the country so not good for any outdoor partying! Hey ho, time to craft and watch the box instead.
Hugs Buttons x

Hels, what a cool commemoration piece you've created for the Queen's Jubilee. I love it! It reminds me of a shabby chic old quilt. Love your design! I've been watching the news coverage of all of the celebrations in your country. Just amazing and I know all your Brits are so proud of your heritage. <3 Candy

Julie Short said...

Hels what a gorgeous piece you have created.
I must say my head is full of cotton and my body needs sleep as I stayed up very late to watch the Jubilee Concert. It was fantastic! You Brits surely know how to celebrate.

Anyway I am freezing my extremities off here as a blast from Antarctica is pounding Australia.

My blog http://timetocreate-handmadetreasure.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/where-do-mermaids-go.html has a secret Merpunks dream.
