Queenly Collage

Is anyone watching the TV serial 'The White Queen'? (UK)  It's my new favourite TV programme and my influence for this card. Although the programme is based on fact, I wanted to add a more fantasy feel.

CCEE Stampers  have a challenge to make a collage using at least 4 stamps. I made a background by repeat stamping a text stamp over cardstock inked with Distress ink pads. I stamped the 'queen' , masked her and stamped over with the 'perspective background' (Lost Coast Designs) . I stamped the moon with birds ( Cherry Pie stamps) and then stamped it out on paper coloured with silver and lilac, cut out the circle, and paper- pieced it.

As well a CCEE Stampers, I'd also like to enter:
Love to Create Challenge - Fairytale or fantasy
Make My Monday Uninked stamp - although not new, I've not used the perspective stamp before.
