Saturday Stamper - DPOV

The challenge this week was to take one stamp & use it creatively more than once. I looked at all my stamps & felt no inspiration so what better thing to do than treat yourself to a new one!
Well this pixie has been very good & deserved it so off she trotted to buy this rather gorgeous Hampton Arts stamp, Queen Tag.
I have already stamped with it 3 times so it is already good value for money!! I stamped onto a card using my new Design Objectives corner flourish set to stamp the corners in gold. I didn't want anything to detract from the fabulous image in the centre. I coloured parts of the design using metallic & glitter acrylics.
Beside the card is my very first attempt at a Matchbox Shrine. I took the matchbox apart & used it as a template to cut my own & cover it with papers. I stamped on the box & inside using a portion of my new stamp then coloured them the same way to emphasise bits of the design. As it is my first go, I haven't done an elaborate job. It really needs something decorative to open & close but right now Im just real chuffed it fits together & looks pretty!!!
