Over the top

Hello Everyone,

Had a great sleep last night and up bright and early this morning, bit cloudy, may burn off ,but who knows...I found my mojo hat...it went walk about for a few days, and had a gorgeous image to colour from Heather Valentin  and coloured her up, then went blank....but while working at a clients on Monday, I picked up a deck of cards off the side table, the box broke, and the cards went all over the floor, when I looked down there were two cards face up, the King and Jack of hearts....and Mr Mojo was right there laughing at me and said 'you know what to do'...the rest they say is history...



"Her Majesty Queen of hearts" from artist Heather Valentin which you can purchase Here  




Coloured with Faber Castell pencils, and glittered her dress trim,gloves and her neck ruffle.
Distressed all the edges of the cards and inked the edges with Heritage ink- dark walnut.



Lots of cuttlebug hearts in red/black/gold and one red rose....


We have a new challenge over at Scrapbook Stamp Society....  "Hearts and Flowers"..

So there you are....the beautiful Queen of hearts, and so many more gorgeous drawings over at Scrapbook Stamp Society and Addicted to Stamps


Right, time for me to get organised, no sun yet but he is trying..thank you so much for all the great comments you leave....have a wonderful day/evening...keep warm or cool...will see you tomorrow....

Luv CHRISSYxx

Over the top, indeed! I love that the elements leave the surface of the card and bring so much dimension. Really wonderful layout and your fortunate mishap has lent itself to a real doozy of a beauty here!

What a talented artist as well. That's a fabulous image. Perfect distressing of the playing cards. Fits the queens image so well.

Super nice job here Chrissy and I love seeing the banister again on the porch. LOL.
hugs to you,
