Stamplorations CAS February Challenge!!

Hey, all, are you ready for another fun Stamplorations CAS challenge?  This month as usual it's anything goes but with the optional twist of RED.

I love me some red, don't you?  As Valentine's Day will soon be here I thought of hearts then Queen of Hearts. I love her imperious pointing--Off with her Head!   I thought the Art Is sentiment matched her personality.  LOL.  Of course, once I started thinking of art, I recalled a gingerbread house I saw over the holidays which someone had worked up as Starry Night by van Gogh which made me think of the painting itself and then a gelli print I had done a while back with a great swirl factor.  Welcome to my brain!

So fairly straight forward stamping with the addition of embossing the queen so she would really pop.  I inset all of the diecuts to keep it simple but also to allow me to save a bit of the swirl print for later.  Yes, I am a gelli print hoarder!

I do hope you'll join in the fun this month!  You can enter up to 3 times and don't have to use Stamplorations products but it would be wonderful if you did!

The Details:  Simon Says stitched rectangle dies, Memento Luxe Love Letter, VersaFine Onyx Black, Stamplorations Queen of Hearts and Art Is, Liquitex Basics acrylic paints, gelli plate, Neenah 110lb solar white, Recollections 110lb white cardstock base
