Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #80 - Q is for Queen

I'm not here! It's Mark's birthday and we're out celebrating - but by the magic of technology I bring you my post for today's new challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, our 80th challenge, Q is for Queen (mothers, sisters or others)

Image may contain: 1 person

Edna looks distinctly Not Amused, although if she's anything like the real Queen Vic, she has probably got loads of children so she will sympathise with this:


Isn't that sentiment wonderful? It came from the fab Gingers House where there are some amazing free word art sentiments to  download. The background is made with yellow brushos, edged with green ink. The crowns (a very old Craft Stamper freebie stamp, from about 10 years ago) are stamped in the same green,  then the streaks and splatters, from the Gentleman Crafter's stamp set, added in purple and burgundy ink.

The wine bottle is a Honeydoo Crafts stamp, stamped in memento ink and  coloured with Promarkers then cut out. I see they now make a matching die set but I think I made a pretty decent job of the fussy cutting so that's one less piece of ironmongery to add to my shopping list.

We'd love it if you would pop over to the Sisterhood and share your take on the theme!

The Craft Stamper set is very, very old and I've had the Honeydoo set about 18 months. The Gentleman Crafter set just squeaks in to the requirements for Retro Rubber, as it's a year and a month old! So I am sharing this with Anything Goes at Retro Rubber.

Although it's not a traditional Mothers Day card, I'm sure many young Mums would identify far more with this than with a flowers-and-lace one and in fact when I made it, I was thinking about my own daughter who is raising two strong, talented daughters while holding down a high powered job herself. So I am also sharing this with Mother's Day/Special Lady at Sweet Stampin.
