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.
