Someday My Prince Will Come......


I had the day off from work yesterday and I got SO much done!! Do you ever have those days where you feel like you've gotten so much accomplished?? Well, that was yesterday for me!! Yippeeee!! Wednesday was a great mail day for me as I received some more of my Magnolia stamps from Phebe, so I couldn't wait to stamp them up and get playing! And....I did!!!

I pulled out some Fancy Pants designer paper from the Aged Florals line! I just love the colour combination in these papers! Fancy Pants paper is such a beautiful thick cardstock with wonderful texture....I used their stuff a lot!! I stamped Tilda with her Prince in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on Stampin' Up's super thick Watercolour Paper. I've tried other watercolour papers, but honestly, they are not nearly the same quality. It's expensive, but SO worth it!!

I coloured in the image using my SU markers, which of course are waterbased so they look gorgeous on the watercolour paper. There are NO lines when you colour on this paper, it all flows together for a solid look with NO streaks!! I used Pale Plum for her dress which is not a colour I normally use, but it was perfect with the paper. I watercoloured her some grass to stand on and added some Diamond Stickles to her pretty fairy wings!!

The cardstock I used was Pale Plum and Blush Blossom, I added two little strips from the Word Window Punch for added interest in the corner with some little pearly gems, as well as in the centers of the Hydrangea flowers by Prima.

For the layout, I tried to use more of a European style to my card. I've noticed when surfing the Magnolia Design Team blogs that they use more layers and more of a scrapbooking looking layout. So I tried my hand at it and I was SUPER ecstatic about the way this card turned out!

Don't forget that Phebe still has some of these awesome stamps left and I'd be happy to share her email address with you if you'd like to get your inky little hands on them!!! Heehee!!

I just got my Magnolia order from Phebe in the mail yesterday! I was so excited - made Tilda with Cake last night - she turned out so cute!! My hubby wasn't so sure about the card - he couldn't get over the fact she had no nose or mouth!! I think that is part of what makes them so adorable. Can't wait to get off of work to play with the rest of my order!
