WOO HOO 500 posts! Celebrating with The Gorgeous Royal

WOO HOO this is our 500 Post!!!  So how about a little giveaway I have a copic compendium Volume 3 from Mad for Markers to giveaway to a lucky commentator on this post, you have until 1st August to enter, I will announce the winner in my next post.

Hi all, Hope you and your families are all well.
Today for my inspiration I have used the gorgeous Royal from Some Odd Girl available from the store here, she comes with a crown, sentiment and banner stamp all of which I have used.
I had a lots of fun creating this card, tried a few new things to me, including lots of pearls and flowers.

I stamped Royal using Lulu Lavender Memento, then I outlined her dress with my new Multiliner 0.3 PURPLE (a wonderful gift from a lovely friend, thankyou). I thought it would be fun to have pink hair with added pearls (like those fancy pins you get for your hair), I slit her hair to place the crown coloured with spicas and added special effects. I also used the sepia multiliner to outline some of the face and black multiliner to the eyes and lashes (which were a fiddle to cut round lol). Sprayed her with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist. Added pearls to the birds and flowers.

The banner was stamped with Lulu Lavender Momento ink and black memento for the sentiment.
One of my first tries at crocheting a flower, the pearl flower and butterfly are made using a template. 

Copics, spicas, multiliners used as well as a huge selection of stamps, papers, digi images are all available from our Mad for Markers Store

Skin/Face - E000, E00, E01, E11, R20, E33, E37, multi liner Black and Sepia, Spica Lavender
Hair - RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14
Dress - V01, V12, V15, V17 and the new multiliner Purple (part of the brights set available here)
AND the colourless blender for correction and to blend out some of the colour in the dress and hair
