GC91 and Simon Says Stamp and Show some Metal

Do you ever finish a project and then while blogging about it, remember you were going to add a pretty little bling hairband or other little embellishments!  No, me neither!  With that being said, Gingersnap Creations GC91 challenge is "Crowns."  The inside has the sentiment, "if the crown fits" and obviously we have a crown upon the king's head and of course have used the "Man's" texture fade folder, which also delivers a crown.  We used some metal and aluminum foil, so we shall go visit Simon Says Stamp and Show some metal!
All stamps are from Artistic Outpost from the Wonderland Collage collection.  The stamped image was stamped on a Glitter Ritz background using Stazon.  Before stamping, I burnished the glitter.  I love the softness and slight sparkle this glitter delivers.  The King and Alice were colored using Stamping Up markers.  For the background, I used two techniques from the Technique Junkies, Al Foil and Cuttlebug Highlights.

I appreciate your comments and thank you for taking the time to visit!  Have a wonderful week!
