It's a Princess Party

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a card featuring some images from the new release of Lil' Bluebird Designs stamps and dies at the Scrapping Cottage.  These adorable stamps and dies are new line being carried at the online store.  Be sure to check them out.

I was attracted to this set in particular.  I think it is because I have two daughters and although they are grown now, it brings back memories of princess parties when they were little.  It is so perfect for a young girl!

I started by coloring the princess and pony using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  These markers come with three shades of the same color in one marker and have bullet nibs.


There are two photos as I used quite a few on this card because I wanted my pony to be rainbow colored.  It reminds me of My Little Pony so I had to use a rainbow!

Next I cut the castle from white cardstock using the Fairytale Castle die.  I used Distress Oxide inks and blending brushes to color it.  I used the Citrus marker to color the windows.

For my background I used two of the slimline dies - the Clouds and the Hills Slimline dies.  I cut stencils using the clouds and then stenciled a sky on a white A2 panel.

 For the grass, I cut panels 4 1/2 inches wide so that I could adjust where I wanted the curves.  I trimmed the sides flush with the sides of the panel.

After I adhered both layers of grass I stamped my sentiment in the upper left.

I decided to use the cloud with the castle.  Originally I was just going to nest the castle in the grass but I thought this looked more magical.

The princess is popped up using foam dots and I added some sequins for sparkle.  After all, what's a princess card without sparkle?


Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
