CDS Sneak Peek - Rosebud Princess


Who doesn't want to be a princess? Who didn't dream of it as a little girl??? I know I sure did! All I can say about Rosebud Princess available June 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps is TOO CUTE!!! I'm a girly girl at heart so it speaks to me. For my first card - I simply watercolored the Rosebud Carriage using my SU markers and an Aquapainter. I wanted to keep the focus on this element - so I used very little embellishments otherwise. The panels in the background have all been popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment "Time to Celebrate is a single stamp from CDS also being released this month. Not only is this set great for young girls - I thought the carriage would be great for a wedding shower card or even a wedding card.

My second card uses the mouse from this set as well as the princess sentiment. I wanted to keep the cards in similar tones, so that I could possibly give them away as a set. Once again, I've used my SU markers to watercolor (coming soon will be some samples using Tombow Markers). I used my Long Rectangle Nestabilities for the sentiment which I tucked in behind the ribbon.

I love the focus you put on the carriage by keeping the layout simple, the panels and dp picks on both cards are perfect, gorgeous coloring! I got to see your samples done before I even got to ink mine up and they were so beautiful I couldn't wait to get started! :)

So precious! I really like how you keep the main images as the main focus with bold coloring and all the white around them.
