Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Progressive Challenge

Hi everyone. It's time once again for Part Two of Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Progressive Challenge. Those who played along with Part One will receive this Part Two image free. If you didn't play along you can still purchase the adorable image from Sweet Pea Stamps and join us this time. The image we are all using is Queen of Wonder by Sandra Caldwell. And can I just say, I love her! Sandra's images are quirky, fun, and full of whimsy. They make me smile.

I coloured the Queen with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and then fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border. She was then matted on textured black cardstock and trimmed out again. A heart was die cut from black cardstock, embossed with a heart folder, and highlighted with Treasure Gold, Copper, and Bronze. It was then placed behind the queen's head.

The background began as a piece of dotty red cardstock cut to a #10 size tag. This was matted with black textured cardstock and the edge was faux stitched with black pen. Before the image and heart were adhered, four miniature heart playing cards were tucked under the top right edge.

The sentiment was computer generated, printed on white cardstock, and matted with black. The inside of the letters was coloured in with red marker and the segments were popped up on foam tape. A length of black grosgrain ribbon with white stitching was adhered to the top of the tag and a metal rose was attached to the front with Glossy Accents. A wonky clock charm, a nod to the Queen's servant, the White Rabbit, was attached to the lower lweft corner with Glossy Accents and a brad.

Thanks so much for joining the Queen and me today. We are delighted that you did...although she has a harder time expressing that :) I can't wait to see what you and others do with this fun image. Alice in Wonderland images are always so fun. Check out the challenge at Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Friends & Fans group. I hope we see you there.

Life is good; so is art.
