Q is for Queen of Hearts

We've a new challenge today at The ABC Challenge - Q is for Queen of Hearts - what could be easier  than adding hearts to your project :)

We've also a new sponsor this month - Polkadoodles!  The image I've chosen to do is Odella Heart.
I wanted the red heart to really stand out so I've done the image in monochromatic colours using Copics and ProMarkers.

She's then been cut out with a Spellbinders die and the die has been edges with grey Copic.
To keep the black, white and red theme I've used design paper from DoCrafts with some black and red card stock.

The red heart ribbon has been in my stash for ages but I think I got it from Hobbycraft.  The LOVE sentiment is also from them and is one of their Christmas embellishments.  I've made it a darker red by colouring it with burgundy ProMarker.
The checked hearts were punched out of a left over strip of the design paper and I've also used some self adhesive gems.

My final touch is a chipboard jar of hearts which I found at Scrap and Craft.

There's some lovely inspiration from the rest of the team - pop on over for a look
