Happily Ever After

Hello Friends! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here in the US we are celebrating Memorial Day to remember our lost love ones. I will be spending my Sunday afternoon setting up a new PC. My old one has had some problems with the network adaptor as well as other issues so it’s time for an upgrade.
I have a card to share with you today featuring Sweet Princess Tilda and her Princess Castle. I’ve been eager to use these stamps for a card from my Magnolia-licious Stamp Club Collection. I colored several images when they arrived but hadn’t made a card yet. For me, coloring with my Copics is the most enjoyable part of the card making process.  
For this card I masked the castle over Tilda so that she is standing on the stone path. I gave Tilda’s dress a pattern using my white Sharpie Poster Paint pen for some added interest and my W3 Copic to shade the polka dots that are in the shadows.  My watercolor background was created by randomly dotting several colors. I used C3 close to the castle where the darker shadows would appear then added B000, BG000 & B0000 working outward from the image. The sentiment was created on my PC and cut in journaling blocks distressed with SU’s Crumb Cake ink.
Here’s the inside of my card with a few elements replicated from the front.

I usually photograph my Copics but I didn’t this time as I used so many. So if you’re interested in knowing what I used on a particular area, just leave me a comment and I’ll be happy to share them with you.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill; The Paper Co.
DPs – Magnolia
Flowers – WOC
Dies/Punches – Magnolia
Pearls/Heart – Hero Arts; JoAnn’s
Tulle - Michaels
Glitter – Gold Stickles

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:

Midweek Magnolias – Romantic and Chic
Magnolia-licious  Challenge – Inspiration Photo
7 Kids Challenge – Nellie Snellen and/or Layers

I will be back tomorrow with my DT project for Craft Your Passion Challenges. Have a wonderful day!

Hugz,
