Queen of Hearts ~ a Bloobel Stamps image

Bloobel Stamps is sponsoring this week at Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge and after seeing the wonderful creations by the WW DT, I was inspired to play along. I love making ATCs and it's been far too long since I last created one. I decided to feature Bloobel Stamps' Queen of Hearts image who I coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. I left the usual white border and added the black mat to help her stand out against the background.

The theme at Wicked Wednesday is to use the colors Red, Turquoise, and Gray which proved to be a challenge as it's not a palette I would normally use. I cut a rectangle slightly smaller than an ATC from gray cardstock and used it to mop up some Delphinium Turquoise Lindy's Starburst Spray spritzed onto my craft sheet. Once dry, a dotty circle stamp was inked with Forget-Me-Not Archival Ink and applied to the background. White embossing paste was scraped through TCW's Tiny Circles stencil. A piece of red and white dotty washi tape was torn and adhered beneath the queen along with a scrap of book paper to give her a royal platform.

To finish the ATC, the queen was popped up on foam tape and a heart border was doodled around the outside before Black Big Brush pen was applied to the outside edges. Black cardstock cut to the proper ATC size (2.5 x 3.5 inches) was added to the back to bring the piece up to the standard size and provide a narrow frame for it.

Thanks for joining the lovely Queen of Hearts and me today. We really appreciate that.When you get a chance, pop by Bloobel Stamps to see the new releases Lisa created this week. Once of them might just inspire you to play along with Wicked Wednesday, too.

Life is good; so is art.
