Oldie But A Goodie #17 – Fit For A Queen / Princess

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a new Oldie But A Goodie Challenge. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to join in the fun last fortnight, but I’ve now gotten myself back into gear ready for this challenge.
Thanks as always to everyone who entered last fortnight’s Wedding or Anniversary challenge – there were some really gorgeous creations!
Anyhow, on to this fortnight’s challenge, and Lisa has chosen the theme for you … mindful of the fact that we have both the Royal Wedding and the Queen’s birthday coming up in the next two weeks, it is
Fit For A Queen or Princess
And we have a fab prize from our sponsor Die Cut Dreams – don’t forget to check out the challenge blog for full details.
Also a quick reminder – to be eligible for the prize you should submit a new piece of work and use a stamped image (not a digi) that is at least 6 months old ... so have a little riffle through your stamp box to find an old but loved stamp ... and of course have fun!! :-)
The other ladies on the DT have really rocked this challenge and there really are loads of interpretations, including a street party theme and “little princess” birthday cards … but I have to confess that initially i hadn’t a clue what to do!!  I didn’t have anything suitable in my stash and don’t have any small children in my life, so was rather struggling. My dear friend Helen did actually send me a couple of suitable images to play with, but meantime I was naughty and ordered a set of stamps which had a particular image that I really loved. (OK, so the stamp is new to me … but it was released several years ago so I’m defining that as being ok on this one occasion ;-)  )
So here’s the result … I kinda went off the wall with this one and produced a goth fairy princess !! :-)
Main image: Debbi Moore Designs “Kerry Jo set 1”, coloured with Promarkers and liberally dusted with glamour dust (much more so than the picture shows!!)
Sentiment: same set as above;
Papers: Doodlebug;
Supplies: roses and gardenias by Lovely Lilac (from Crafts4U2Do), rosebuds, lace and gems from Hobbycraft;
Tools: small, large and lacy circles nestabilities.
