Queen of Hearts

    For those of us in the USA, we still have a few hours of January left but for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, based in Australia, it's already February 1st and that means a new challenge has started.  Our theme is "Anything Goes."  We have three new sponsors this fortnight:
Faery Ink (3 images),
Oddball Arts (3 images),
That Craft Place (3 images).
     Each company supplied images for the team to use and I used "Queen of Hearts" from Faery Ink.

I chose to use the sketch from Technostampers
and used Warm Colors for the Papertake Weekly challenge.

     I wanted something really CAS so colored the image (with aqua markers - totally new way to color for me and I have lots to learn!), then cut and matted it with dies from QuicKutz.  The sentiment is also die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The polka Dot ribbon is from my stash, probably from Really Reasonable Ribbon but it's been in my stash for a long time so I'm not totally sure about that.  I added a bit of sparkle to the hearts she's holding and to the gems in her crown.  How's that for totally CAS in less than 15 minutes, with most of that spent coloring it?
