Queen of Hearts

Happy Tuesday!!
I'm back with another post today...actually this is my "first" for today as the post below was a scheduled post (first time doing that!  Glad it worked properly :) ).  It's quite a wonderful post actually.  You see, I was contacted by Davi at Tuesday Throwdown asking if I wanted to join their Design Team!!!!  Of course, I said yes :)  So my earlier post is my project for my first week on their design team and I'm thrilled to have that opportunity!  It's a great post, you should go read it :)

So today's card of course, is another image from the heart melting Saturated Canary line.  Is it bad that all I want to do is make cards with these images?  I don't want to use any others...just these...I love them so much!
This card is more stunning than I ever anticipated it to be!  While the queen of hearts is usually red...I couldn't seem to get any red papers to match up well enough...and when the striped paper printed, it ended up being more purple than red...so I went with purple!  It has this royal elegance to it that just blows me away!

So this image is Queen of Hearts by Saturated Canary.  Quite the queen she is!  I colored her all in with my colored pencils.  I took quite a bit more time coloring her in as I tried to do a lot more shading with her outfit.  I took pointers from other works of art on the internet.  It was so fun going a little deeper and working a little more to make the image really pop.
Ok that was a bad picture...sorry :(

The frame and heart flourish were cut with me cricut from files I created.  I cut out some hearts to go on the flourish and then covered them in glitter, along with adding some glitter to the hearts on the image.  The panels behind the image are cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge and layered with purple.

I added a matching ribbon and bow across the top behind the image and then 6 purple pearls in the corners for added bling.

This card is entered in the following challenges:
