I Believe in Fairytales

Hello everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We watched lots of basketball (Go Mountaineers!!!) :) and were able to get lots of chores done around the house, which was great. I had a wonderful time at the crop with my sister on Friday night. Got lots of images colored :)



For my card today, I had to ink up this brand new Magnolia image called Princess Tilda (you can preorder her from Magnolialicious Here). I colored her with copics (Dress: R81, R83, R85, R89; Shoes: E55, E57; Hair: E33, E37; Skin: E00, E01, E11), then cut her out and added Stardust Stickles to her crown. Next, I stamped my castle image (from Hero Arts) three times, colored it with copics, and cut it out three times, giving the castle added dimension.

Here's a picture from the side showing the dimension:



Next, I created my card base using SU cardstock (Rose Red and Close to Cocoa). All of my design paper is from DCWV's Rustic Stack. I used my SU Ticket Corner punch on all corners and added light pink pearls. I added a ribbon and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts as well. The sentiment is from an old H&M stamp set. Finally, I adhered Tilda to the card using dimensionals.

Here's a close up of Tilda:



What do you think? Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it so much, you all give me such encouragement. I hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Have a fabulous day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Big Hugs, Christine
