A Medieval Feast






Hello everyone and Happy Sunday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I was able to spend lots of time in the craft room yesterday and was able to get two cards done for you today. The first card is my submission for the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. Our challenge was a sketch challenge. It would be a dream come true to guest design for such a wonderful stamp company. For my submission, I decided to ink up my brand new stamps from WOJ's new Medieval Collection. As I'm sure you all know, I love my fairy tales, so these stamps were right up my alley :)

I first stamped the Banquet Hall with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock and colored it with my copics. I added some glitter with my Sakura glitter pen and some Glossy Accents. I also used my white gel pen to add some starts to the night sky outside of the windows. I next stamped Maid Charlotte and King's Jester Charlie onto a separate piece of PTI cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added lots of stickles :)

I used SU cardstock (Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke) for my card. My design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I used my new Fleur de Lis EK Success border punch for the border at the bottom. For some finishing touches, I added a green ribbon from Michael's and a Prima flower. What do you think?




For my second card today, I decided to make another card using the same sketch by Katharina. I really love working with this sketch and couldn't help it :) I stamped this adorable Princess Charlotte stamp onto PTI cardstock and colored her with copics. I added and gold Stickles to her crown and dress, a pink rhinestone to her crown, and pearls as buttons for her dress. All cardstock is SU (Regal Rose and So Saffron). My design paper is from Imaginisce's Fairest of Them All line (these papers are so cute!) :) I used my Fiskar's Threading Water border punch for the border at the bottom of the card. My sentiment is from Verve. I used my circle nesties to cut it out. For some finishing touches, I added pink ribbon, Primas, and a pearl. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I'd love to hear what you think of my projects. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine
