StampInsanity's "Mystic Beauties" and Challenge!!!

Hi again :)

*2nd post for today!!!
Please be sure to scroll down and see this week's
Pixie Dust Challenge :)
Thank you!!!

It's time for a... 

This week's challenge #8 is to create an...
Easel Card

I fell in love with "Pearl Princess" from today's new release called...
Mystic Beauties

I really wanted to try to create a mostly white card, but it turned out to be more of a monochromatic card (?)
Either way, I love how it turned out!
But, it turned out to be so hard for me to take a pic of a mostly white and light colored card...
any suggestions out there? I would be sooo ever grateful for any tips!
Thank you :)

Here's my card!!!

I really enjoyed coloring this image in! I wanted to keep the colors as light and bright as possible!
And look! No DP again! yea me ;)
 I thought that the embossing would help create that underwater look I was trying to capture for Pearl Princess :)

Princess Pearl Card Details:
Papertrey Ink White CS; Martha Stewart CS
Ink(s): Copic Markers:  
Accessories: Prima Flowers and Pearls; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
and Vines Embossing Folders; Making Memories Trim 

Here's a look at the entire "Mystic Beauties" release!
Aren't they all so whimsy and beautiful?!?!

All images can be found in the Stamp Happens Shop!!!

So, so pretty! Your coloring is fab! I love that you used the pearls to hold the card up! It's really beautiful. Maybe if you tried to photograph it with a darker background? Great job!

The colors are fab! I love the simplicity of the background with such a bold image. Lovely!

Marlene said...

Holy Cow Margie, this is perfect. Your colouring and that seafoam colour TDF, so pretty!
