Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

Over at Quietfire Designs there’s the 2nd Annual Queen of Hearts Challenge going on.  I thought this would be easy but found it wasn’t really – everything I had in mind didn’t look quite right when I tried it! Oh well, I did manage to put a card together and I’m sure I’ll find a worthy recipient soon.

I started with a purple base card onto which I stamped lots of little hearts by Prickly Pear (Hearts & Flourishes) and then stamped the same on some white glossy card which I cut out and coloured with the same purple ink (Memento) and a little Fired Brick Distress Ink.

The large heart was die cut with a Nestie from a deep red glitter card and then smaller hearts punched out of the remnant. The Queen herself is from Lost Coast Designs (Kings, Squires, Damsels Set) and she’s scattering hearts onto a pile beneath her.

The scan shows the card colour better

Some of the little hearts are on 3D pads to raise them

Great detail on all these stamps, they always give a perfect impression

I'm ready for my close-up
