Everyday Princess released in rubber through Stamping Bella. She is the perfect girly Halloween image and I love to deck her out.
For starters, I stamped her onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored her with copics. I added surround shading which is coming out pretty light in this photo - sorry - using prismacolor pencil PC1012 Jasmine blended with gamsol along with French Grey 50% and 90% for the ground. I then combined various papers from a pack I bought at the end of last year by My Mind's Eye called Mischievous. I loved this because it had rusty oranges and teal blues. I little different color palate for the holiday. The image was cut using another new Sizzix die I picked up called Tags Rounded. Machine stitching holds it all together.
Our challenge was to use ribbon and/or buttons, and I've used both. The orange pattern that separates the wordy paper on top and the teal polka dots on the bottom is actually stick-on ribbon by Martha Stewart. It was a pack of fall colors I picked up at a yard sale. Score! The top border was cut using a Nestie scallop edge and then topped with a sheer black ribbon bow. I topped that with a bat button from Little Yellow Bicycle company and tied it with twine from Queen & Co.
The image was adorned with Charcoal glitter applied with a Quickie Glue pen and some Sakura black Glaze Pen for her shoes. The sentiment is also from Bella and I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Bella blog and share what you think. Ya just never know when those Bella Bucks will come in handy.
Enjoy your weekend. I'm participating in a walk/race for a local charity and then look forward to pulling all my fall decorations out. Woo Hoo!
