The Queen escapes!

Following on from my crumpled paper silhouette, I have been searching around the house for paper that lends itself to folds and creases that stay permanent.
I found that paper money suits best, so I thought I would have a little fun with a £5 note.
This fiver has been long since spent, so don't go looking for it in any art galleries.   :-)

This was a my first challenge to try and achieve an actual likeness from crumpled paper.  So the challenge was too inviting to resist.  I just HAD to do a silhouette of the Queen tying to escape through the back door of a bank note.  I hope I have succeeded in this little project.

No offence Lizzie!  If this ever reaches you . . . enjoy.
