Queen of Hearts

The characters from "Alice in Wonderland" are funny, crazy and colorful.  They make great subjects for artistic interpretations and Krista at The Saturated Canary has created a Queen of Hearts who is beautiful, sassy and a blast to color! 

I stretched my usual card size to fit a #10 envelope.  After all, variety is the spice of life, right? The card base is black card stock with a cream card stock behind the red dp from a valentine collection.  I accented the black swirl with a few red rhinestones.  The little swirls on the right side of the image were taken from the larger piece, but would have been hidden under the image.  It's a shame to hide a pretty swirl and they added just the right touch to balance the layout.

The image is colored with Copics.  I didn't write down all the colors (I forgot again) but I did remember to make a note of the colors I used for her hair:  B12, B18, C9 and 100.  I love coloring with reds --- such a rich color!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you are having a happy and creative week!
