Sorry, no time to discuss what we were doing as only had a couple of days before the deadline.
Something Quintessentially English...... there are so many things that to me are English,
tea and crumpets, picnicking in the rain, the bulldog spirit, Big Ben and, of course Royal Ascot.

I think of horses naturally, top hat and tails, ever so slightly camp, yet so frightfully posh daaahling. The sport of kings.

So here is my little homage to Royal Ascot.



I assembled the hat from The kit as per the instructions and when dry I covered everything with paper tape for extra strength and to add a slightly disheveled feel. When that was done I painted the hat with Americana Black paint.


Use the Sweet Poppy stencil and gold paste to add the horse to the brim and allow to dry.


When this is dry, neaten any seepage areas with black paint. Tie a ribbon round and tuck a couple of little cards with R A on into the ribbon. (I used printed cards though it is easy to make your own with an alphabet stamp and a scrap of card.)
