Princess Tales

Well the weekend is over but we have a new week to look forward to. I found this challenge on Live and Love Crafts that I thought would be fun to enter. Below is the bottle of perfume that inspired me to create my card. I used Princess Tales from Belles n Whistles - such an adorable image. Just perfect for my design. I so enjoyed making my card.

I colored my image with Copic Markers - Skin E000, E00; Hair E40,41,42,43; Dress C00, C01, C03; Lips R35. I used a silver glitter pen for the rope on her bag and her crown. Her bag was paper pieced and her bracelet/crown pearls were created with Liquid Pearls - White Opal. I used the following dies - Marianne Heart Die/Eiffel Tower, Cherry Lynne Heart Doily Die, Memory Box Bird Cage, Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirly Butterfly and So Wrapped Tilda Lace Die. The paper is from Cryogen and Maja - Vintage Summer Basics. To finish my design I added lace, feathers, tulle bows, Shabby White Frantage, riboon, sentiment and vintage clock.

Today I created a Criss Cross card using beautiful a paper from Graphic 45. Usually I use an image as my main theme on my card however, today I chose to use many different die cuts to create my card.

There is still time to enter our "Anything Goes" challenge. Don't forget to check updates for CHA on our Facebook Page.
