A fairy princess

Never having had a daughter, I sometimes wonder what she would have been interested in. Ponies? Mermaids? Probably rainbows. What about fairy princesses?


This card is dedicated to all girls who love princesses. It has been made in a sightly shabby theme using pinks and lilacs, with a few little touches of silver and brown.



The Princess featured in the centre is a Conie Fong digital stamp called "Twinkle Emily". She's been coloured with Copic markers and embellished with tiny silver sticky dots on her crown and hair-bows. I changed her dress design to have 'stripes' like her socks, and drew loops at the end of the sleeves and on the bottom hem of the dress to make it look a bit like lace.


Copic colours used:

Yellows: R08 YR04 Y38 Y13 Y000

Pale pinks: RV13 RV11 RV10 RV000

Dark pinks: RV69 RV66 RV55 RV63 RV52

Skins: E04 E02 E01 E0 E00 E000 E0000

Browns: E39 E15 E13 E11

Greys: T5 T3 T1 T0

Taking the flower idea and expanding it, I freehand copied the blossom part of the image a few times onto blending card, coloured them, fussy cut them, and stuck them to the card with foam dots.


The background paper is from a stash of retired Kaszazz papers. Sorry! I think it might be hard to get now. I cut a 15cm wide strip of the paper and then split it in three, keeping the top and bottom pieces for the card because it had the swirly white pattern on it.


Most of the other embellishments are generally found, but the flower-patterned ribbon is from a stash that my mother gave me a long time ago when I first started making cards. I think it might have been purchased in the 1990s!


I hope you like this card creation and I hope it goes out to a real little fairy princess someday! 👸
