Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! :) Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Hubby and I had a wonderful time at my dad's wedding, it was beautiful. Well, I have a lot to talk about today so I'll keep this short and sweet :) Sorry for all the pictures, but this project took me forever and I really wanted to show it off :)
I saw the idea for this tower on my friend Brandi's Blog. She linked a tutorial for this tower box, so I knew I immediately had to try it :) To see the tutorial for this box, click HERE. I made the tower box out of SU's Chocolate Chip cardstock. I cut a window in the tower and placed Queen Charlotte's face (colored with copics) in the window. I also placed Knight Charlie at the base (he was also colored with copics. I cut him out and adhered him with dimensionals. This tower box is actually a box, the lid comes off and you could fill it with all kind of goodies :)
Next, I made a matching card to go with it. I inked Charlotte's Horse with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I stamped Queen Charlotte on a separate sheet of PTI cardstock, colored her with copics, added glitter with my Copic Gold Glitter Pen and Diamond Stickles, cut her out, and adhered her to the horse with dimensionals. I inked around the main image with SU's Close to Cocoa ink. I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Chocolate Chip cardstock. I layered Bordering Blue on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV'S Once Upon A Time stack. I added a blue ribbon, then adhered my image to my SU cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added Primas (the roses are also Primas, I got those at Michael's). What do you think?
Thank you so much for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think of my projects today if you have time. I hope you have a wonderful week. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project.
