Hearts


The Gothic Arch challenge this week was the theme of 'Hearts'. I'm flitting between Art Nouveau, Art Deco and my usual Vintage passion at the moment and I really like this stamp!

Normally if you mention 'Queen of Hearts' I immediately want to shout 'off with his head'!! And then I start dreaming about Alice In Wonderland!

This stamp is by 'alpha stamps', the background is vellum and I used a heart shaped brad to secure the glitter thread at the top then secured behind the stamped image and fanned out. I coloured the stamp with gel pens and watercolours and finally added the 'teardrop' shaped gems.
