TIOT 77 - Swan Princess Fun

Hi Friends~

I hope you are all doing wonderful!!!  Only 3 more weeks left of my summer school class!  YIPPY!!!  One more paper to go + one presentation and then I'm DONE....get a couple weeks off and then fall classes start!  Bummer that my time off is so short...but getting this hard class done during the summer really will be a blessing!!!  Also I'm so pumped and looking forward to CHA this next week!  This is the first time I am attending so I'm seriously jumping out of my seat with excitement!!!  Looking forward to meeting many of my blogging friends and of course the fun getaway is a blessing too! 

It's Thursday.....Are you ready for another TIO*T*?!  I'm very excited to share my creation with you today!!!  Not only have I used one of my brand new fairytale Kraftin' Kimmie stamps (which Susana now has at SCACD)....combined with the challenge this week I think this turned out amazing!  Don't you love when your creations turn out just as you have pictured in your head?  This week Suzanne has an awesome sketch challenge for us!
Here is the brand new Swan Princess and the sentiment even comes with her along with a cute swan and rose accessory stamps...this mini set is definitely worth the money!  When I saw this card that Elaine made I knew I had to have this beauty!  I've used Kaisercraft Gypsy Sister papers oh how I love this paper collection...I think these papers and colors scream "Kim!" LOL!
Here's the wonderful sketch that Suzanne has made for us to play with!  I hope that you will play along with us!
Swan Princess has been colored with my Copics, I used mainly BG colors and added B52 for a blueish tint to the teal/greens.  I've added eyelashes with my Copic Multiliner to make her look a little more girlie (after I saw my DT Sister Aud do this on one of her cards....thanks for the inspiration hun!)  This beauty has been cut out with the Oval and Scalloped Oval nesties.  The famous "Crissy Armstrong Dot Shadow" has been made with colors from the princess' dress.
Flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The large 35mm Wild Rose started off white and I airbrushed it with my Copic ABS again using the colors from Swan Princess' dress.  The 20mm roses are from the Purple/Lilac Floral Foundations pack.  The small roses are 10mm white roses that also have been airbrushed.  To finish off the flower collection is a white Gladioli Stem that too has been airbrushed.  I've added star dust stickles to the Gladioli stem for some extra bling!
Finally I have another angle to show you of Miss. Princess.  I've added Illuminate Smooch to her wings for even more bling!  I hope you have enjoyed my card!  I hope that you now head over to the SCACD Blog to check out the amazing creations my DT Sisters made with the sketch!
