Once Upon A Time!


Yesterday I posted a card that I did for a challenge with my fab/sassy friends, the challenge was to create a card fit for a Princess. Last week I discovered a set called Doodle Factory - Fantasy available from Starving Artistamps which I thought would be perfect for this challenge .... as I had been looking at some of these stamps for a while and kept putting off purchasing them, I finally bite the bullet and ordered a couple of sheets. I had hoped that the stamps would arrive before I had to make my card for yesterdays challenge .... but on Tuesday when they hadn't arrived yet I went with plan B ... which until I had seen these other stamps had actually been plan A anyway.

Of course these stamps turned up yesterday after I had already uploaded my card. Of course I had to play with this new set and I decided to also do Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch which you can find at Poetic Artistry's blog.

I used my long rectangle nestabilities to create the scallop layer of the main image. The sentiment was created using my Karen Foster Snap stamps. I stamped the castle on my white card and the princess on a piece of scrap white, cut out the princess and layered her on my castle piece using foam tape. The Pink areas of the castle & the lavender areas of the dress were both colored over with my clear spica pen to add a touch of sparkle. I also added 2 purple gems to the princess' dress.

Paper: White; Elegant Eggplant & Pale Plum - SU; DP - Papertrey Ink
