Queen Of Hearts

Hi All,

Well, I fell for the " A very Important Date" cd from "MCS" the other week. I do own some crafting cd's but I am not the biggest cd crafter. However when I saw this I had to have it!!! I own so many "Alice" themed stamps and digi images I saw so many possibilities of using them more fully, and being able to create interesting themes e.c.t ...... Also a lot of the backgrounds and images would be fab for the whole steampunk look, which I Love, and I have bought stamps e.c.t but not yet had a play!

Also I just fell in love with this "Saturated Canary Image" Although I love Alice themed stamps I have always gone for the mad hatter images, or Alice ones .... I know that the queen of hearts was the baddy, so all the portraits of her as ugly and evil are accurate, but when I am sending a card to someone I just don't fancy giving someone a card with an evil character on it ... I am just not quite sure what that says! This image however is just adorable!!! She is Sassy, beautiful and cute ..... also I could see loads of uses for outwith the "Alice Theme" so I just had to have her.

The background scene is printed from the "MCS" cd. I also printed out the card symbols separately, coloured with copics and placed across the card. I have also coloured the "Saturated Canary image with copics, and have raised her a little using 3d foam, and have blinged up the hearts using some stickles, ..... In my head the little tab embellishment at the top of the card is a bookmark, holding the page in a book .... It works in my head, but I am not sure if it just looks a little random!!

  22. I wouldn't want to send a nasty character on a card either, I don't think it says a lot for how much you like the recipient but this is a a much much cuter take on the images and I love your tassel :)
