ATC - 'You Can't Scare Me'

The current theme over on the Artful Idea's ATC flickr group is 'You Can't Scare Me'.

I remembered seeing this image of a woman on Pringle Hill Studio blog recently who fits the bill.  She looks pretty formidable and I don't think much would scare her!

The background is a mixture of old music score, an old baby wipe, distress ink, gesso and rubber stamping.

I called her 'Queen of Mean' and used a new font I found yesterday  from ScrapVillage where you'll find every sort of font you can imagine (for free!)

The font I used is called 'failure'.  I printed it off and coloured the edges with a little Distress Ink.

Her crown is a plastic embellishment I coloured with Perfect Pearls and a little Stickles glue.

Thanks for looking!

I bet she is the Queen of Mean because her dress is so TIGHT around her waist! Can you imagine having to wear something like that all day?!! I'd be a "b" myself!
Great job; it is really neat!

I was thinking the same thing as Angela! I'd be pretty mean having my tummy pulled in sooooo tight too! LOL
