Feeling like Royalty

Hello Again Crafty Friends!!

Are you ready for a new Funkie Junkie challenge?
Today starts the new challenge "I'm feeling like Royalty" with our host Suzz.

Join us HERE for a peek at more inspiration and to play

I started by building up layers on a card base.
I used distress ink in walnut stain ink on the top 2 layers.

To create the top layers I used a Tim Holtz paper doll, one of the sets of transparent wings from Tim Holtz, and created a crown from a scrap of gold paper from Tim Holtz (which I embossed with the typeface 3d embossing folder). The gold belt was created with gold embossing powder. I used a retired Tim Holtz die to create my pink oval base from kraft core paper. Then, I hand cut a black boarder to add a base. 

(also I colored my paper doll with distress ink (dusty concord-then wiped to lighten) and alcohol markers (for rosy cheeks)

I used distress collage medium to glue everything together.

Next, I layered some of my Tim Holtz chipboard pieces.

I used pop dots, to add another layer of flowers, and more pop dots under my base.
The base layer for under my topper was created with the Tim Holtz basket weave 3d embossing folder.
I used, rustic wilderness distress ink to add depth. I spritzed everything with water to lighten it up and get it blended out.

I added the Tim Holtz foiled stickers to finish everything off.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.

  1. This is a different side of your creativity. She’s even got the I’m tough royalty expression. She just might yell out “off with their heads!”. I love that wee bit of stitching I see. Also wondering how the heck you could stop there, but it’s perfect.

    1. Thanks Annie, I didn't intend to stop there, but my machine jammed up and since I just got it back from an expensive return I thought I better not push my luck. Also, I ripped that piece getting it out of the machine! Lol so I gently tucked the paper into place then glued it all down! 🤣😬🤫 as for the gals face I thought she looked fierce and sassy like royalty♥️

  2. Fantastic make! I love the flowers around the edges and the embossed golden crown.💕👑

  3. I love how fancy she is with her royal crown and gold glittery belt. Her expression is very royal! Fantastic art!

  4. Loving this fairy princess Tera. She looks so at home in her wonderful garden x

  5. She wears her golden embossed crown with pride and attitude, love the attention to detail with her well matched belt. Fab design, thank you for the inspiration.
    Creative wishes Tracey.

  6. I love how all these parts come together so perfectly on your card suitable for royalty! She so owns it!
