WINNER! Queen of Hearts...

Two challenges caught my eye this week and inspired me to print out my Mo Manning "Queen of Hearts". 

First was a "Monochromatic" Sir Stampalot challenge (see details of challenges below) and I chose to color the Queen with reds, of course! Even her skin tones are shades from the same red color.(also detailed below) 

Second, Quietfire does a yearly "Queen of Hearts" Challenge... I think this works!

The background of the base card was stamped with one of my favorite heart stamps using clear ink and clear embossing powder to create shiny red on red texture.  The same heart stamped three times with red ink, clear embossed, cut out and then mounted on foam tape for dimension were added to the lower corner. The sentiment "Who Loves Ya?" was stamped and punched with a "File Tab" punch.  A red metallic ribbon and red studs were also added at this stage to reflect some of the focal image reds.

IMAGES:  The focal image is from Mo Manning; heart is from Stamp in the Hand; "Who Loves Ya" sentiment is from Stamp Mania 1998; inside sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo - "Happy Valentine's Day" 
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel;  base CS is from my endless stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Hero Hues gems from Hero Arts; "File Tab" punch by McGill
INKS: The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:
