Queen of Hearts

Here I am again with another page in my altered dictionary for the letter "Q" at The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge the word Queen had jumped off the page at me even though I went with Quill for my first page Here.  

My 2nd page for this letter was born after I found some small playing cards and  part of the definition was "a playing card with a picture of a queen" this was glued to the centre of the page and an assortment of images were added.

I  used a postage stamp by Papermania Portabello stamps in Archival Ink Vermillion and chipped sapphire distress ink  and added a little gold  by embossing the crown and lion (Tim Holtz) stamps


Thanks for looking
till next time
