Stampotique shiny

Hi again, The Stampotique challenge is from

Kathi Rerek she is our hostess this week and she's shimmering and shining:

My spirit animal must be a magpie as I'm attracted to all things that shine, shimmer or glitter.  My challenge for you is to create a project that literally shines!
So I made a card
 This one features Queen of hearts with Daniel's Leeta with the Mad Hatter's hat

 Very difficult to show how shimmery and shiny my background is, it's such a gloomy day here.
I brayered shiny paint onto my Gelli Plate and used a stencil for the pattern.
 Leeta's head needed a new neck and shoulders for this so I made them out of card and transplanted her! She shook her head with a quick flick and her baubles flew out, she's lucky she didn't brain herself !!!!Mind you she is definitely a little green about the gills!

The work at home continues, a weekend off and back into the racket tomorrow. It will be worth it, just think no more worries over leaks but the house is soo cold and dark with scaffolding all over it. Even last week when the temperature rose to 28/29degs it was really cool inside.
I hope all is well with you my lovelies, hugs Gay xx

I had a good chuckle over this one Gay! The background looks wonderful on my iPad so I figure it's got to be amazing IRL.

This is so fabulous! I love that you've morphed two character stamps to create a totally different personage! I also love that her cheeks have a slight greenage tinge to them, which would definitely happen after such a traumatic transplant.

Thanks so much for playing along with my challenge this month!
