Little Princess

I was feeling quite inspired by all the stormy weather here today, rain, black clouds and thunder! So this image (still my favorite) seemed ideal. :)

After last weeks mirri-board debacle, I thought I would try seeing how glittercard photographed, again its good to experiment! ;)  There are 2 different shades of blue glittercard used here, and they complement the papers quite well, whilst giving it a little texture.  I also hand-stitched the stripe panel.

I used K&Co Addison papers and sentiment.  I coloured the lace flowers with pro-markers, and also inked the edge of the image to match (not so clear on the picture).

This card is my entry into the below competitions:

Mo's Digital Pencil - Use fabric.  I used lace and ribbon.
Crafty Cardmakers - Inky Fingers - I used pro-markers to colour in the lace flowers, and inked the edge of my image
Simon Says - Check it out - I used K&Co checked paper.
Sketch Saturday - Great sketch by Simonne
Passion for Promarkers - Use a number
Papertake Weekly - In stitches - I hand stitched the stripey panel.
Everybody 4 Art - Birthday
Paperplay Challenges - Card for child or teenager
Pile it On - My Favourite things - I used TwoJill stamp from Mo's digital pencil - my favourite :)

Good luck to everyone in these challenges, and thank you for looking :)

I love what you've done here - there's so much interest I keep finding new things to see & that sentiment is so apt with the image. Glitter card isn't as bad but I kept thinking of you & the Mirri when i was doing battle with mine. Have a good week.
