I went quite a ways off my comfort zone when I created my Queen of Hearts. My background is grungeboard die cut into a heart shape. I then used picket fence and pewter stains to color the heart. It actually is very silvery (the lighting today was very poor.) I embossed the heart for texture. The queen is actually an angel die cut, but I thought that she looked very queenly without the wings. On the right is a diecut heart with one of Tim Holtz's sayings stamped on it. "The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. On the left are two diecut and rolled flowers. I think these are really cool flowers. The heart background is bordered in lace and stands on a diecut easel.
The queen is being entered into Bloggers Challenge with the theme of cut it out; into Creative Belli with the theme of Valentines/hearts; into Frilly and Funkie with the theme of lacy, heartsy Valentine project; and of course, into the QuietfireQueen of Hearts Challenge.
