Sparkly (Spoiled) Princess!

Hello! I am playing along with Club Anya's Monday Mania challenge today! This week's challenge is brought to us by Berenice and it is to make a card with a Sparkly Princess Party theme. I am the first to admit, mine has more of a Spoiled Sparkly Princess theme!

I wiped away Wednesday's straight skirt before stamping her and drew her a slightly more full skirt, which I covered with stardust stickles! I also gave her a rub-on crown to complete the princess look. I don't know about you but I have been seeing more and more projects with Washi tape (which The Greeting Farm now carries, too!) It comes in lots of pretty colors and prints, so of course I had to have some even thought I wasn't entirely sure what to do with it besides use it as tape...I am still learning but I have discovered that you can tape it to cardstock and cut it out with die cuts or punches then carefully peel it off of the cardstock to use it. A lot of it is translucent so it adds a neat look. (The aqua piece on my card is Washi tape cut with a Nestie Labels Die and the black scallop border is Washi tape cut with a scallop border punch. ) Test a small piece on the cardstock you choose - although Washi tape is usually repositioned very easily (which comes in handy if you place it crooked!) I found that it tougher to remove from some cardstock (Gina K) than other's (Georgia Pacific) after being run through a die cut machine!

The Details:
Stamps: Wednesday Creeper (The Greeting Farm), Sentiment - Hero Arts
Paper: Fancy Pants Designs,
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00, E11,R20,G00,BG32
Hair: E50,E53,E55
Clothes: C5,C7,C9,RV21,RV23,RV25
Misc: Washi Tape, Stardust Stickles, Taylors Tiny Twinkles, Nestabilities Label Die, Scallop Border Punch (SU), Rub- On Crown (Fancy Pants)

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will get a chance to play in the challenge, too!
