Summer Joy Princess - Sugar Nellie



Glad you stopped by.  Today's card is featuring another of Sugar Nellie's cute little ScrapBerry critter stamps and this is Summer Joy Princess.  The set is so cute... it's got a couple flourish stamps, a crown, castle, heart and of course Princess.  I got off to a rollicking good start on this card.  Didn't take any time at all to decide on the paper and layout.  Even the gray bunny parts moved along quickly and then the ears... holy smokes, I ended up with the brightest pink inner ears you ever saw!  I tend to be a little heavy-handed at times and this was one of them.  There really wasn't a lot I could do with them at that point except try to tone them done and I think it worked... I went over the pink with a Copic Gray C0 and although it still isn't as 'light and delicate' as I intended, I'm happy with the outcome.  I love this image and this card is for a very special 'little princess' I know.

So glad you entered this little beauty in our challenge at Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends, Marilyn! The layers of ruffles are made for a little princess! Image all of the fluffing and spinning that would happen in a dress like this IRL!! By the way - your ears look just dandy!!
What about R02 or even R11 (rather than RV) if you want a light pink? Hugs, Cathyxx
