Limited Supply Challenge- Almost

Be sure to check out the bottom of this post for information on a fun Artful Inkables Blog give away!



I originally made this card for Friday's Limited Supply Challenge- to make a card using NO embellishments. Yes, a very weighty challenge for someone like me who is addicted to ribbon and loves the use brads, bling, and so many more of the wonderful goodies collected in my stash. Well, apparently, I needed to slow down and read the instructions more closely because embellishments included Crystal Effects and this card is chalk full of it!

I started by stamping the cute little princess from Lizzie Anne Designs, Once Upon a Time. She is one of my favorite images to paper piece which I feel gives a card a lot of visual appeal and for me is lots of fun- I guess it's reminds me of paper dolls! After stamping the princess with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I masked her and stamped the castle. The images are colored with Copic markers and the background scene was free handed and colored, as well. The shield frame is from a piece of light silver shimmer paper in my stash and the die is Sizzix. CS is Cameo Coral and Green Galore and PP is DCWV- Nursery Girl. For sparkle, I made a favorite mix of Crystal Effects (my contraband embellishment) with Dazzling Diamonds and SU re-inkers of different colors to make my own custom Stickles. Even though I didn't make the challenge, it was a lot of fun getting back to basics and really using my imagination.
