I am so happy to be the guest designer for All That Scraps this month. I have had so much using the stamps released this month. I have to admit that I wasn't sure how I was going to use the following stamp. Totally cute but so different from the Swiss Pixies that I usually reach for. When I pulled the stamp out of the packaging I noticed that the title was Queen of Hearts. I decided to google that title for inspiration. I have always loved Alice in Wonderland, especially the Disney version, so when I saw a picture from the movie I immediately knew what I was going to do. I just happened to have picked up some fun geometric black and white paper from Teresa Collins just last week. The bold pattern fit right into the look I was going for. It was also a total bonus that I got this Martha Stewart punch last month, (first time I have used it), that resembled the shape of a heart.
I will admit that I struggled a little bit with her black hair. It's so hard to get it just right. I used some Spellbinders dies to create a frame behind the image but I think my favorite part is the speech bubble. How fun. I will have to use it more often.
My Word: Action
I am truly taking this seriously. I feel in my heart that this is my year. I have some things that I am working on that I am so excited about. I can't wait to share. So sorry about the tease but I couldn't contain myself.
