Queen of Hearts

My latest play!

The Queen of Hearts (wall hanging thingy!)

This is just a piece of ranger manilla card stock cut into a square.  I ahve use distress inks (old paper, peeled paint, crushed onlive, bundled sage and forest moss) to distress it in many layers!  I was looking very green!!
I have misted it with a layer of perfect pearls mist (the green one!).  My Tim Holtz stamps arrrived so I used them to back ground the card in forest moss using straight ink for stamping and also watercolour stamping!
That's the back ground, now for the embelishments!

I have used grungeboard lettering distressed with peeled paint and fired brick and then also used grungeboard with the Tim Holtz heart dye.  I have coloured them with perfect pearls using the very sticky perfect medium!  Some idea-ology with the spinners, safety pin and lock.  The playing card is a picture of the queen of hearts, distressed and then stuck onto one of the acrylic fragments.  The final addition (which took forever to finish) was the vial!  One of the simplest things but it took ages to stick the label on the bottle as I had misplaced my double sided sticky tape!!!  It is a very appropriate love potion!

Well I added some steampunk chain and jump rings to make it into a wall hanging!

I like this muchly so it will probably end up on my wall by my craft desk!!

Happy Inking
