Queen of Hearts - art doll

This is the art doll that I made for Jan for the June art swap.  I love altering playing cards and decided this would be a good body for this doll.  I first used alcohol ink on the card to get the gorgeous dark pink (raspberry).  I used the Catherine Moore Character Construction rubber stamp Venetian Tea Party lady for the face.  I stamped her face over a heart and cut the heart out and attached it to the back side of a white slide mount to frame the face.  I used Sarah Milne's (Scenic Route) Loveland collection for the hearts.  I cut out a large heart to cover the body of the card.  To this I added eyelets for the arm attachments and the keyhole and key (Tim Holtz).  I used the Tim Holtz swivel clasps for the arms.  I attached hearts to the "hands" and added heart charms to the right side.  One of the sentiments on this paper was "i {heart} you".   Lastly, I added the gold crown and the gold scepter (cut from one of the gold trims I bought at StampDiva.)
