Yes the talk of the entire world right now is the big "Royal Wedding". Personally I am not all the goo goo over the whole thing...but it is the biggest news right now....lol. Well our challenge this week at the Creative Belli Challenge is going right along with the "Royal Wedding"...we are challenging you to make a "Royal" card...using "royal" embellishments. Some ideas might be: fleur de lis, diamonds, princess, crowns, tiaras, the color purple, etc... You get the idea. Well here is what I came up with. As you can see, I went with purple (the color associated with royalty) and some diamonds and sparkle. My pattern paper is all very very old...which is the idea behind the Belli Challenge...use what you have! I layered the flower PP, then the purple oval on that. For the princess, I used a SU die cut...BUT...I didn't use the die cut, I used the frame from the die cut. I then took a piece of muslin and "sponged" the purple ink onto the CS. I thought it gave it a neat look using the muslin instead of a sponge or stipple brush. The I trimmed it down, and layered onto the oval. The sentiment is a a very old sticker I had in my sticker stash. Last, I added some more "royal" embellishments. Some diamonds on the crown, and stickles on the crown... I also added some stickles to her dress for a "shiny, royal" look. I used stickles all around the dress shape, and then some extra around the skirt part of the dress. A very simple card, but it seemed "royal" to me!
Now, head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge for some more royal inspiration. Don't forget to play along with us, by linking up your royal creation on the bottom of the Creative Belli 116 post! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
