Tag!

DSC03824 Studded leaves with pearls

Hello hello!

I was chatting with Karuna (hey there!) this morning. I was telling her how I don’t feel like making anything and BAAAM it hit me so hard, a light bulb moment and here I am sharing my light bulb moment creation with you… a tag.

      

DSC03819

I made this for a cute little studious girl. She is a very strong child. She was being bullied at her previous school, there were a couple of girls who kept calling her names; nerdy, geek and mostly bookworm. When the family found out they told her to stand up for herself. On her last day at school, when she was being called bookworm, she raised her finger and said “Call me..(pause) PRINCESS bookworm” ROFL!!! Her mother tells this story to everyone and anyone she can and at every chance she gets! Now that she has started her classes at a new school, this gift is a must!

Anyway…The flower was roughly drawn, cut, coloured with crayola (coral) and then embossed. This is a five layer flower.

I don't know if you can tell but the mint green pattern is an animal print and the pale coral one is houndstooth. These were actually one inch background tile images for web pages. I edited them in Photoshop, changed the size and colour and Voila we have pattern paper :P

DSC03826The butterfly is same as the last card, the only difference is that this one has a bit more shimmer. I placed a copper glitter ball as it’s head and the remaining body is made up of chunky glitter (ivory) both are from Pie Lane.

DSC03827 The sentiment is hand written and I have added tons of hand stitching on this one. The lace is distressed with Archival Ink (sepia).

Hope you like it! I think the colour story at PDCC is perfect for a princess!
