Queen Marie (Published in The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
When last year June from Dezinaworld sent over the most amazing Marie Antoinette images I was so delighted as she had brought together a wonderful collection of images. Immediately I made some tags, etc but it was nearing the end of the year when I set about making cards to submit.
Fast forward to earlier this year when I received my complimentary copy of The Stampers’ Sampler (Jan/Feb/Mar) and my surprise to see the Marie cards which I’d actually submitted to their sister publication, Take Ten.
Alongside June’s images I also used various Oxford Impressions stamps.
Three cards were published but I will just share two here in this post.
I should point out that the Marie images are png’s which I set against French postcards from French Kissed Postcards. That is the beauty of png’s, having the flexibility of which background to use.
DIGITAL CAMERAI simply love this image of Marie in that glorious gown.
A fabric rose was added to the stamped bow. DIGITAL CAMERAA slightly more mature Marie I’d say in this image. DIGITAL CAMERAThank You for taking the time to visit this post.
Have a lovely weekend.

    These are just wonderful, Lynne – so beautifully put together… the book pages are a great background, and the postcard framing of the Marie Antoinettes is inspired! Not surprised they were determined to get them into print – whichever magazine it was!! Congratulations!
