Queen of Hearts | Pride Card

Hello and ‘Happy Weekend’ to you! It’s dark and raining here in Wales today but Lynda’s fabulous card is here to brighten things up! With a drag queen feel, Lynda has made an amazing pride card with our gorgeous QUEEN OF HEARTS stamp from our Alice in Wonderland collection…


This weeks inspiration for Visible Image features the fabulous Queen of Hearts from their stunning Wonderland collection. I love colouring up these characters – it takes me right back to my childhood, curled up with my nose in Alice’s  magical adventures.

I decided to pop a little Pride spin on my queen today, and give her a rainbow backdrop and a glitzy drag queen look. It was so much fun to create.


Here’s how I did it..


queen of hearts stamp | pride card | drag | rainbow inks


Step 1: I created my rainbow with distress ink and used the edge of a piece of scrap paper to ensure clean lines between the colours.



Step 2: I taped the Dark Hearts stencil over the top and applied some generous layers of black ink. I couldn’t quite get the depth of colour I wanted with the distress ink so switched to pouncing versafine clair Nocturn ink over it instead.



Step 3: Once happy with the depth of black, I added clear embossing powder to add some shine.



Step 4: I coloured my Queen with Copic markers and gave her some glittery eyeshadow with stickles and fussy cut. I also used a fineliner to extend her eyelashes for a more dramatic look!



Step 5: To finish I stamped the sentiment and edged it in complimenting rainbow colours. I also added sequins- because every Queen loves a sparkly sequin!




I really hope you like my take on this classic character as much as I enjoyed making her. I will be back with more character cards soon.
