Another fantastic challenge from Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog today. The theme is Fairytales. So we want to to see what cards you can make with that theme. I chose the Magnolia Tilda with Apple for my card. Doesn't she look like Snow White. The challenge for me on this card was her black hair. I used my Copics to color it. I really had to work hard to make it look dark. It actually looks a little bit better in real life. Here is looks a little gray. I'll just have to try again.
The shape behind the image is a Spellbinders Labels #18 die. Since this particular set doesn't have sizes that make a small mat around the shape I decided to make my own. I just put the die upside down on a white piece of paper and traced around it and then cut it out. I will be using that trick more often. The flowers that you see are from Petaloo. They have a lot of flowers that are the perfect size and shape for cards. The red roses are actually a ribbon product that I cut apart. The white flowers are a new product and come in a lot of different colors. The leaves are pre-attached so they are ready to just stick and go.
I wanted to point out a little something special about my sentiment. I love the sentiments that have been released lately in the circles so I thought that I would try to make one myself to go with my card. I used Photoshop and it was pretty easy. The apple was from a WingDing font that I found called Krapple. All kinds of apples images in the font. Fun!
The ribbon is one from my stash that I folded over and adhered to the card. I like how the ruffles on both sides of the ribbon create a double ruffle when I did that. The twine is from the Twinery. Love it. I've got it in all different kinds of colors.
As always Simon Says Stamp is giving one lucky winner a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp store. I'm telling you that's one of the best prizes out there in the paper crafts challenge community. There is so much to chose from. It's really easy to enter too.
