Inspiration Monday-Creams and Blues

Happy Monday everyone! It's time for another Inspiration Monday at the La-La Land Crafts Blog and this week we have a color challenge for you:

Creams and Blues

This week I decided to work with the gorgeous and beautiful Princess Marci! I loved coloring her and paper-piecing her dress. That's the great thing about these images...the coloring and paper-piecing options are endless!!

Copics & Chalk:
Skin: E000, E02, E11, chalk
Lips: R20, chalk
Hair: E29, E37, E33
Crown: Paper-pieced, stardust stickles, gold stickles
Dress: Paper-pieced (blue areas shaded with chalk)
Tan areas shaded with E31, E55, colorless blender
Gold Stickles

It's hard to tell in the photos, but I added little gold stud earrings to her ears with a little drop of Gold cute in real life!

The beautiful dps are from Close to my Heart. I used the Sizzix Crown die and embossed it with The Paper Studio Mesh Embossing Folder. Then I rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the edges and top of the crown. I covered the entire crown in Stardust Stickles and outlined the edges with Gold Stickles. I also covered the Fleur-de-lis and Cross with Gold Stickles. The blue pearl and blue & clear rhinestones came from my stash. The large cream pearls are from Recollections.

The blue ribbon trimmed in gold came from my stash also, but I'm pretty sure I got it from Michaels. I used my Bow Easy to tie my double looped bow. The sentiment is from a set by Pebbles Inc. (I got it from my local Hobby Lobby)

In this side view photo, I tried to capture the sparkle from all the stickles. It's really sparkly and pretty in person!

If you want to see more inspiration from my fellow DT sisters, then be sure to head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog. You can also participate in our challenges all month long by uploading your creations to the Gallery for a chance to win a gift certificate to the STORE.
