Weird and Wonderful

Hi there one and all.
Well as the title says this week for the Try it on Tuesday challenge our fantastic teamie Georgina would like us to create a card following the theme Weird and Wonderful.  This week we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts so please don't forget to link them in your post should you decide to join us for the challenge.

I wasn't too sure where to go with this so I took a look around the Octopode Factory shop and was spoilt for choice with all the fantastic digital images.  I decided to download the Queen Elizabeth 1 image to use for my creation.

I created the background using a Creative Expressions stencil, Distress Inks. (Fired Brick and Faded Jeans) and some sequin waste with a spray of pearl Glimmer Mist. The border was cut using a wide MS border punch. I coloured the image using copics with a little touch of stickles on the crown and ruffle. The sentiment was generated on my computer using Word.

Well this is about as weird as I do but I'm sure you'd love to check out the fantastic ideas that my fellow teamies have come up with so do please pop over to the TioT blog and check them out.

Thank you for visiting me today and for leaving your much valued comments.
