Diamond Jubilee 2

Following on from Wednesday's jubilee card, here is card number two. This time around I made a Jubilee stamp. 
The Queen's head was taken from this picture of one of only four plaster-casts made of the Queens head by sculptor Arnold Machin, and is the image used on all the Royal Mail stamps.

I used Photoshop to rextract the background so I was left only with the head, I added the wording and then turned it into my Jubilee stamp by attaching it to an X-Cut postage stamp die.

I used small pieces of red, white and blue 10mm ribbon for the bunting,

The rosette was made by gathering up lengths of ribbon and joining them into circles, the red layer was made from wide satin ribbon, the white and blue layers from 10mm satin ribbon. The white layer was gathered loosely and then attached to a small piece of scrap card, to make a circle slightly wider than the tightly gathered blue layer.

Another lovely Jubilee card. I really like the ribbon bunting and the rosette. And the 'stamp' looks fab.
