A Bewitched Marie

Today's post is a little ATC to my favorite queen. Marie Antionette. I while back I read the wonderful book "Marie Antionette" by Antonia Fraser and have a whole new appreciation of her. And no, she never said "Let them eat cake!" The inspiration was the magnificent French Woman Coffered 1 stamp by 100 Proof Press....I like to believe it really is Marie.

What better way to include my favorite queen in the upcoming holiday then to add Retro Cafe Art little black witch hat cutout and masquerade mask. I layered her on numerous papers including a scallop edged beige, a velvet ATC and the bottom layer is orange and green polka dots on black. Of course there is some Stickles accents and the sentiment "Bewitched".

Hope you will be bewitched this week.
artfully yours, gerri

  6. Ha! This is a great ATC -- love the accessories! btw - when we were in Paris, France on a tour they commentaried MA as saying that famous quote...but did qualify it as "it might have been something she would've said". But I think it was for the benefit of the all the tourists. LoL
