Your Majesty

Just a quick post with a fun card I made today.  I seem to have done a lot of more serious cards recently so thought I would go bright and cheerful with this one <g>.

I printed the background paper and embossed it with a folder but I can't remember th e company who made it and it is in another room of the house lol.  The stripy paper was designed by me and also printed.  I used one of my favourite dies - _Anjas Vintage by Marianne Designs and used this as a matting behind the stripy layer.  I used two digis by Digi Darla ' Momma Queen' and the sentiment 'Your Royal Highness'.  The Momma Queen digi was printed twice so I could cut the head and the crown separately and overlay them to create dimension.  The crown section was embossed with the same embossing folder I used for the background.  Pink gems were added to the tops of the crown.  ProMarkers were used to colour the fave and hair and I just could not resist adding a few funky pink curls :) :) :) :) (those who know me will know why!!!).  My trusty gold paint pen came in handy again for the earrings and embossed areas of the crown.

  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  • Digis - 'Momma Queen' and the sentiment 'Your Royal Highness' by Digi Darla (I am unable to find a link to either of these in the store but they were part of the weekly downloads while a member of the club)
  • Die - Anjas Vintage by Marianne Designs
  • Backing papers by me
  • Embossing folder - think it is an Embossalicious one.
  • ProMarkers - Warm Grey 1-5, Baby Pink, Cerise and Blender
  • Gems, gold paint pen, foam tape etc from my stash

I think I'm going to have to print this card and take it to our hairdresser :-) I'm having such a giggle here .... oh, you are so naughty (in the nicest possible way) Well, I did say that your "Artees in Green" card was a bit like you so you are playing fair.
