Titania Queen of the Faeries

The SCD (Something Completely Different) challenge this week was to create a Thrinchie (3 x 3 inch square) featuring a crown.  I got my subscription copy of Craft Stamper yesterday and really like the tutorial they had by Liesbeth Fidder called 'Layer upon Layer', so I used this technique to create my background.  The fairy stamp came from Sue in a stamped image swap.  The quote is, of course, from Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare: "You spotted snakes with double tongue; Thorny hedgehogs be not seen; Newts and blind worms do no wrong. Come not near our fairy queen".

Background: Distress Inks - Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge
Stamps - dragonfly and crown (Craft Stamper freebies), Flourish - Dimension Fourth


  1. That's lovely Janice, the stamp is fab. I liked that article too xx

  2. Nice quote to put with the stamp! Do you know Britten's opera of MSND? Can't be doing with most of it but there's the most gorgeous epilogue (Now until the break of day...) with the chorus and Oberon (sung by a counter tenor) and Titania - beautiful!

  3. Magical wonder if she will find her Bottom. Really love your Trinchie.
