Craftbarn Alpha Challenge

Challenge 23- Letter Q

Not an easy one but I decided to do Queen which was a great opportunity to use the beautiful TJ Alice in Wonderland stamps, I adore the original Alice drawings of John Tenniel and these stamps are beautiful

I started by printing two copies of the dictionary pages and folding the top one where the word appeared and cutting the heart shape out, I kept the cut out and shaded with distress ink Fired Brick

I then used washi tape to create a layout, and then stamped a variety of images with Fired Brick and Black Soot

Stamps used
TJ- Alice in Wonderland, A Walk through Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass
Lost coast- Fourth Dimension
Paperartsy- MN83
Prima Finnabair- Triangles & Chequered
Blockheads- feeling Regal 
Paperbag Studios- Diamond & Button Heart
Indigoblu- Jack
Studio 490- Art from the Heart
Justrite- Harlequin Script
Invoke Arts- Scripted Heart
