Q is For Queen

Hello.  Welcome.  It's been a while since I played at PaperArtsy where the current challenge is hearts.  So I was lurking around and spotted a lovely post by Debs where she stamped a heart background.  I decided to combine with the Craft Barn's Dictionary challenge and alter one of my giant playing cards.  


I stuck a piece of lined paper onto my playing card and stamped the collage heart from Paperartsy HP1105.  I added a piece of ripped book paper.  Norwegian.  Could be an exciting story!   


I stamped the queenly looking lady from Paperartsy LPC007, coloured some grunge paste black and applied it through Tando's distorted harlequin mask. 


I hadn't realised how big the definition of queen is in the dictionary!  So I added the definition at a bit of an angle and then offset my fussy cut queen down and to the right of the stamped image.  Actually I quite like that!  It a bit like a very detailed shadow.  A pictorial echo?


Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  9. This is gorgeous. The stamp you used was beautiful, especially because I'm not a stamper. I really enjoyed the ghost image you created, too. This is a fun and lovely entry.
