... your inner princess :-)

oh my gosh.. i got last week a few new stamps from Alota and Magnolia-licouos!!! This Tilda was on my wishlist for so long. Love, love the castle stamp... :-) The fishes were sent to me by a friend, i believe it was Annie. Thank you so very much!! I really love this card, the color of the paper is so pretty, really a cool aquamarine and the polkadots are glittery. I did not want to go too busy so i just added sweing with a brown thread (i like to use the shiny/glossy thread on my cards "Guetermann") The sky and the water is air brushed. For the sky i used "Baby Blue" i think it is B21, and the water is also a blue and i added some Dim Green to it.
Stamps: Fish and girl: Magnolia
Szene/Castle stamp is Altoa Rubberstamps (the price is the wood mounted - this stamp is also availabe unmounted and it is much cheaper!!!)
Edit to add: this card is sold Thank you so much Christina!! Iam very grateful!
