i heart the king


i heart the king, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

I had to make a pocket to put valentines in, for my monthly art group....I thought I would have fun with an Elvis theme. The background is layered crayon, and marker, blended together and then coated with a decoupage finish. Glitter nail polish provides the sparkle. The sides of the folder are sewn. Hope you like it!

For Illustration Friday. I drew this last April, but she is so perfect for the Super Hero theme, that I thought that she deserved an encore.
