iSpy Sketch #11

Hi there and welcome to week 11 of iSpy Sketches! Have you had a chance to play along yet? If not, you should give it a try.. Kim finds inspiration from fellow card-makers and creates an easy-to-follow template to be interpreted any way you like!! I never look at the inspiration card until after I'm done my card - that way I don't copy the original closely and it becomes my own creation! Here's my card:

This card actually began with the crown... lol. I don't usually use an embellishment as a jumping-off point but my faux patina came out so well I wanted it to be the main attraction... The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set called Dream Big.. I envision stamping "MOM" or "FRIEND" on the inside to complete the sentiment.. 

This was originally pewter - or that metal look that most of Tim Holtz stuff is - and I altered it with Vintaj Patina Paints and GOLD Inka Gold paint. I'm not an expert at altering metal, but it was great fun to transform this piece.. I have a few more bits and bobs to play around with too! 

This week's Sketch Challenge is from Julia Stainton (Julia S @ SCS). This is the card that it's based on, and here's the sketch:
