Queen of Hearts

Good morning blogland,

It's Saturday - which means a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge, for Team Wends! This time round the challenge theme is Inspired by a Fairy Tale - Fairy Tale Creatures or Characters - as always please note there must be some stamped (digital or rubber) on your project, but your project doesn't have to be a card!

I however did make a card, oh the surprise!, and with a Saturated Canary image called 'Queen of Hearts' then had a mild moment of panic (I'm a proper follower of rules) and suddenly thought is Alice in Wonderland a Fairy Tale or a Modern Classic? Arggh - panic!  In the end I ran out of time to make a different card - and one of my Teamies has made a fab tag from another Queen of Hearts stamp - so peace restored!

Here's what I made - I was going to do something a bit more fancy with patterned paper and layers, but it would appear that's just not me at the minute (or at all?), so it's all relatively Clean and Simple again.

Supplies used:
Digital stamp:
Saturated Canary - Queen of Hearts
coloured with my Copics

Rubber stamp:
Taylored Expressions - Simple Strips : Birthday

Taylored Expressions - Simple Strips: Asymetrical
Creative Expressions - Noble Collection: Double Stitched Squares

Pretty Pink Posh - Layered Hearts Stencils

Anything else:
Distress Ink
Blending brush
Self-adhesive pearls

Hope you have time to pop over to the challenge and have a look at my Teamies work - amazing as always! 
Have a good weekend,
Signing off now,
see you soon,
