Fairy Tales Do Come True

I'm so excited because my new Elzybells arrived yesterday (talk about a happy mail day) and I'm in love with this knight & princess. How cute are they??? I really love the Renaissance era so I pretty much squealed when I saw this image. My image is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored them in with SU markers and then paper pieced part of her dress in. I thought that paper made great fabric. I went over parts of the armor with my Sakura Stardust pen so he wasn't totally all gray. I also covered the blue part of his shield with Crystal Effects. I spent the morning meeting my friend Suzanne at Stamp Salado where we spent well over an hour shopping. If you are ever in the area you must stop. It's a great store that is just filled with stamps and supplies!!!! I was excited to find an actual store in Texas that carries some of the A Muse stamps. WooHoo. Definitely a great day oh and the sun was shining bright :-)

Stamps: Knight & Princess, sentiment (Elzybells)
Paper: Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Basic Grey - Figgy (Hope Stamps Eternal)
Ink: Palette Noir (TAC)
Other: ticket corner punch, brads, Sakura Stardust pen, Crystal Effects, Artichoke grosgrain, scallop scissors

Oh my gosh! I love this so much! That stamp is sooooo cute! And how smart are you to paper piece that part of her dress - it looks phenomenal!

This is absolutely beautiful! The details are wonderful (paper piecing is a favorite technique for me.) This stamp is on my wishlist, just had too many "must haves" for it to make my first order! Thanks for the inspiration!
