For a Princess

I'm skating in on the last day of this week's Whiff of Joy challenge who had a great sketch by Katharina.

I'm also entering this card into Stampin' for the Weekend's challenge and the theme this week is "Strawberries dipped in Chocolate".

I used the beautiful Princess Charlotte image and coloured her with pencils. I added gold stickles to the 'buttons' on her gown and in the centre of the crown. I distressed the background with Tea Dye. I also distressed the scalloped edge (which I made with a corner punch) on the red/white paper to make it stand out more against the brown cardstock. I had put the brown card through the cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder to give it more texture. To finish off the card I added some white/brown/red primas, a gold charm, lace and gem brads. Then I made the word "Princess" on my label maker!

I just love this colour combo and will definitely be using it again :)

Papers: Jenni Bowlin, Prima Marketing, Bazzil & Papermania
