CCT pink & brown:'Your Majesty!'

CCT theme this week is 'Marshmallow & Chocolate' i.e pink & brown. So for my card I have used the fab sketch over on truly scrumptious (with theme of 'flowers') and some new 'Charlotte & Charlie' stamps from WoJ which will be released next week. They are a continuation of last month's medievel theme so can be mixed and matched. I've used 2 stamps here, Queen Charlotte and her throne.

The choc/pink on it's own looked a bit flat so I picked out 2 other colours in the dp (green and turq) and added splashes of that to pep it up a bit and to give the card a more funky look which I think suits these images.

I've stamped the throne and cut out oval with my nesties and then I've cut out Charlotte seperately and placed her on the seat by carefully cutting around the arm of the throne and a bit around her arm and slotting them together so that she is sitting in it (Much easier then trying to mask her then adding a bit of the arms back on). Again, it's more 'blingy' IRL which you may see better if you click on photo for close up.
Stash:
  • Images: Queen Charlotte & throne are from upcoming 'medieval collection part 2' WoJ release
  • Colouring: Copics, Sakura clear stardust pen
  • DP: K& Co lotus tea box. Just used the 1 piece as it's double sided. (the pad had a cut out shape on the front cover which I liked the look of so I used it as template and used it on my card - the brown background shape)
  • Others: petite scallop ovals and circle nesties, lots of gems, fiskars 'apron lace' border punch, faux stitching, lace, paper flowers and sentiment typed out with ATB tape writer

Pop on over to CCT to see all the other fab DT cards and there's also some yummy stamps on offer this week donated by yours truly ;)

Thanks for dropping by.
