So, today I am featuring my fav image from the Medevial images from the new April Release! This is Princess Petunia and I just adore her! When I saw her I knew I had to make another shabby chic/romatic card! So, I pulled out my Tim Holtz crackle paint and got busy!
I made my easel card from American Crafts brown Damask cardstock and used Webster's Pages papers that I had in my stash. I distressed the edges of the pp with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool and then painted on the Picket Fence Crackle paint. I also inked the edges in Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress inks. I used my Kelly Panacci Stitches stamps and stamped in Broken China. Again, I used some velvet ribbon and cotton lace trim! The flowers are a combo of Shabby Chic Primas and dollar store flowers. I add the gorgeous hat pin, that my dear blogging friend Martine sent me in a package of goodies for my b-day and I sprinkeled blue half pearls here and there.
I stamped Princess Petuna on Neenah card and coloured her with my Copics, cut her out with my Nesties and used the 'Out of the Box Technique"! I left the image in the die and used Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, and Vintage Photo Distress inks to ink the background! I also added a lot of Butter Cream Shimmerz to Petunia and the flowers.
Here is the sentiment on the bottom of the easel card that comes with Princess Petunia....I love this sentiment! The butterflies are Studio G stamps that I got at Micheals.
So there ya have it...thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment so you can be entered to win some Krafty medevial Kandy! Now head on over to see what delish creations Andrea and Jamie have to share with you and don't forget the stamps are in the Kraftin' Kimmie store now!
