"What's On Your Head" Challenge!

This challenge is over on
and set by the very lovely and witty

The challenge is to make any type of project but there must be something
on the head of the subject.  Gini invites either traditional head wear
or more wackier interpretations - anything goes really!

Well I took the traditional route (quelle surprise!) and used two rubber stamps by Dina Wakley (Create with Abandon and Lonely Girl).

I painted the background, glued an old book page onto card,
rubber stamped the Lonely Girl on, stamped out her crown
and stuck it on with 3D tab and rubber stamped the
Create with Abandon text.

The little fibre bow is attached with a sticky dot.

Sorry Gini, I can't think of a funny story to go with the card,
but I do have a song in my head now ~

"Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman oh yeah"

Thanks for looking :)

Perfect Sherry!
She's saying
coming ready or not!"

Her spots are very Avant-garde aren't they?
Either that or someone has been at her with the ice cream scoop eeewww......In which case she'll be saying
"Do you want a 99 with that luv?"

She could have been a contender for Pan's People. (Can we last until the New Year do you think with the TOTP's?)
