Creating a background fit for a princess

When I was a little girl my favourite disney princess was always Belle and this Polkadoodles image reminds me of her so much I coloured her up in the same style.

I wanted her to make a grand entrance and so created her a staircase to lead her down into the grand hall

There is a video showing how I created the staircase on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

White Card
White Pearlescent Card
Acetate
Stitched Rectangle Nesting Dies
Snowflake Embellishment Clay Slices
Alcohol Markers
Nuvo Drops in Oyster Grey
Blue and white snowflakes made from a snowflake die

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by printed the Frostella and Ginger Image and colouring. This was then cut out using the scan n cut.

I have been having real problems getting a smooth cut lately and was starting to loose faith in my machine but after watching a couple of you tube videos I decided to wipe my may with a baby wipe!! Just wow what a difference. It has made it sticky again and the cut is perfect.


I then hand drew a fence to go around my ice rink, I wanted something that would follow the perimeter of the lake so to get the angle right I had to hand draw. This was very basic and consisted of just lines as I really am useless

Apologises for the horrendous photo. 

This was coloured and I fussy cut out the posts


On a separate piece of card an oval formed my lake and I coloured this to give the illusion of ice

On a piece of acetate a frame created using rectangle dies was adhered with double sided tape and I begun to build my scene onto this


A landscape die was used on white pearlescent card to give me my distant mountains and trees were printed and coloured from the Winnie Winter Wonderland Collection



The adorable snow lady and gingerbread man were adhered to appear to be ice-skating.


A piece of white card was cut to 1/4 inch longer than A5 and this 1/4 inch was scored and folded. This created the top fold by being attached to the front of the card panel


Foam tape was adhered around the edges and this was filled with snowflake sprinkle embellishments



A second piece of acetate was framed in the same way as the first to form the card front

The 2 were adhered together. I put some silver washi tape just around the edge of the acetate as you could see the foam in places

On the front of the card I added my hand drawn fence and a snowman from the Winnie Winter Wonderland Embellishment Collection. Ice skates from the same collected were added in the top corners



Die cut snow flakes were adhered around the frame.T he acetate panel was dotted with Nuvo drops to give the appearance of snow 


A piece of blue card was secured inside the card so that it can be seen through the window


This is being entered into the following challenges
