Belle and a Royal Proclamation

Welcome back for another Tuesday challenge with Tiddly Inks! The challenge this week is to create something with "Attitude" and this is the card I came up with...

It's been fun combining the images and for this scene I used three Tiddly Ink images: Bella, Royal Proclamation and Door of Dreams. The sentiment is from a Inkadinkado Kids Quotes stamp but I punched it out on labeling tape and strung it across the top.

To add to the "attitude" I sketched in the skull on the door and went over it with a fine-tipped marker. Then I made sure I used one of my very few pieces of decorative paper with skulls on it, although I couldn't help but to cover most of it up in the end. But don't worry - I was still able to fit a few chippies in there. LOL

I practiced more with creating folds on the dresses. At first I didn't think it would turn out by using my own advise "I just kept going!" I was actually surprised how well it turned out. So when in doubt, just keep going. :D And don't forget to practice those folds and creases in the clothing! (hint hint wink wink)

  6. This is amazing - the folds that you put into the dresses and the facial expressions make this absolutely gorgeous!!!

  7. haha, the attitude you gave Belle.

    All your folds looks SO natural. I had to look at the originals because they look like Christy sketched them in the image. Way to go. I got the hint, will practice.

    Did you pencil sketch in the folds before coloring or just went by the seat of your pants?

    Awesome job as usual. Your too cool.
