My version of the queen of hearts face card. It's high time playing cards got a facelift don't you think? The dripping red paint on the rose and the flamingo are pulled from Alice In Wonderland. As you may remember the gardeners accidently planted white roses and to keep themselves from getting into trouble, they painted them red, but the queen found out and it was 'off with their heads!'. The flamingo was the queen's croquet mallet.
I was worried about adding color to this one, but it turned out. In keeping with the traditional playing card queen, I kept her face, hair and hands white.
