Queen of Hearts - Ike's World Challenges Guest DT!

Howzit Stamping Friends!
First I would like to express my sympathies to everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey, my thoughts and prayers are with you all😢

I'm thrilled to be guest designing over at Ike's World Challenges this month with this fabulous Queen of Hearts digi by Ike!  Challenge #96 started today and as always the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist and this month is Mythology...think mythology, legends, popular culture, folklore!

I love making tall and skinny cards and love doing fancy cut outs and combined both on this card.

I coloured this dark and twisty version of the Queen of Hearts in Paper 53 on my ipad using a stylus.  I then printed her out onto Neenah Solar white cardstock and added the background with brown Derwent Pastel pencil blended with a Dove blender pen.

I trimmed down the panel and folded the cardstock in half to create the tall thin card.  I then fussy cut out the right hand side.  To complete the card I adhered black cardstock inside and trimmed it down leaving a 1/4 inch border on the top, bottom and right hand side but didn't leave a border around the fussy cut section.  To balance the card I finished it by applying Black Soot Distress Ink to the fold down the left side.

I couldn't resist including this photo of my kitten Neo checking it out😋

 Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!
Happy Stamping!
