Princess Fiona

Ready for another Tiddly Inks challenge? This week our challenge for you is to create a card or project using the theme Diva! That can include a variety of terms and I chose to go with a princess diva...

I used two Tiddly Ink images for this card, Princess Fiona and Gothic Window, which looked like they were perfect for each other. I wanted to expiriment with her dress and added lots of folds and pleats - I think I went overboard but had fun coloring it. ;D

I used my new tag diecut and adorned it with a felt bird, also from the same diecut. After it was finished I realized it matched paper too - it was such a happy coincidence.

Did you know? The Arcade in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, is a Victorian-era structure of two nine-story buildings, joined by a five-story arcade with a glass skylight spanning over 300 feet (91 m), along the four balconies. Erected in 1890, at a cost of $867,000, the Arcade opened on Memorial Day (May 31, 1890), and is identified as the one of the earliest indoor shopping malls in the United States.
