I couldn't believe my luck to find the pottery vase which is her base. I instantly thought is was perfect for my Queen of Wands with it's pattern.
I am a collector of sticks that I just like... I'm always making wands and staffs and well just like sticks in bundles around the house have no idea why... so the Queens' wand was actually a twig off one of my current bunch of sticks in the corner of my studio. I connect most strongly with this card so she was a real joy to create. Did freak out a few visitors with my dripping silk in the front garden while it was drying... sorry.




bunches of love, Cheralyn 🌻
