Desert Islands Crafters Challenge: The Queen’s Itinerary

Welcome to the next installment of the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. If you’re not familiar with it, let me give you the low down. The 1st and 15th of each month, you will be given an itinerary of items where, if you were stranded on a desert island, you would need to use at least 3 of those to create a project.

We went about things a little different this time around, and with all of the Royal Wedding hooplah, we decided to ask The Queen herself for “her” itinerary. 

The Queen’s Itinerary:

1. Red, White & Blue

2. Fairytale

3. Ribbon

4. Lace

5. Crown Jewels

6. Horse & Carriage

7. Stair Step Card

8. Castle

9. Prince Charming

10. Princess Bride

Since I had a bit of a royal wedding myself…what better thing to create for this challenge then a layout of my wedding?

I used items 2, 4, 5, 8 (ish), 9, and 10. Why 8-ish? Well, we didn’t get married in a castle, but the place was fashioned after a castle.

This was one of my favorite parts of the ceremony. Gene got down on one knee and offered me my ring from his sword. Then I got to knight him. After that, I offered him his ring from my chalice (which I had made myself). Pure magick.

You can see  the glimmer in our eyes…how excited we were…It was such a beautiful ceremony.

I love the paper I used…the borders and journal spot are from a new DCWV stack “Royal Garden” (fitting, I know!). I also used some Kaiser rhinestones, and gold lace doilies. I didn’t want to go too over the top, because I wanted the photos to be center stage. 

Now it’s your turn! What could you make with The Queen’s Itinerary? Please visit the rest of the DICC gals, listed in my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
