TRIPTYCH/QUEEN OF WANDS



Triptych - what a great word - it doesnt really flow off the tongue though does it and it is darned tricky to write! The challenge over at Alter It Monthly is Shrines, Altars etc and I'm hoping my triptych can fit into this category. What do you know I've used Cherry Pie Art stamps again!

A right Royal challenge over at Gingersnap Creations where they have asked you to use a king or queen or both. My Queen is the Queen of Wands - a tarot card. A little about the Queen in case you don't know - she represents the heart of the home, welcoming, nurturing and warming. Here she is depicted with her familiar, her cat and a sunflower, representing warmth. The Queen is friendly and warm, but can be forthright and even bossy. What you see is what you get - she is open and straightforward and can be a loyal friend for life. She can be passionate, impulsive, quick tempered though she does not hold a grudge. She is imaginative and creative with many talents.
