The Castle in My Dreams

Hello my fellow stampers,

It's time for our NEW RELEASE from CCDesigns and DoveArt Studios.  Just in time for Christmas.


Due to the popularity of the DoveArt Studios line of stamps, it is our biggest release yet.
Featuring 12 new stamps ranging from Easter, Southwest, Oriental, In the Woods, Magical and Country.  Something for everyone!

Here is what I have created:


I decided to choose the new Castle stamp from the new DoveArt Studios release in honor of my daughter, Madison's, love for Disneyland.  It brings back special memories of her very first visit to Disneyland when she was a little girl and she was scared of all the characters but Cinderella.  I still remember the look of awe on Madison's face when she met Cinderella and the kindness that Cinderella showered upon her.  Her love for this magical place, that allows everyone to dream big dreams, keeps on growing and for that I am grateful!


Here is the picture that inspired my card...isn't it dreamy?!



Copic Colors Used:

Castle ~ T0, T1, T3, T5, T6
          B21, B23, B26
                    Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23
Greenery ~ G20 G21, G24
Pathway ~ W0, W1, W2, W4
Water ~ B21, B23, B26
Background ~ Y04, B23, B26, RV34

Supplies Used:
Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen
Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker by Deco Color
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive

To create this card, I first colored the Castle with Copics on Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover, 100lb. and then did some fussy cutting.  The background is created by using the airbrush machine with Copics on glossy cardstock and then spritzed with 91% alcohol in a Mini Mister.  I wanted to really give the Castle a lot of dimension, so I popped the castle up by using a double layer of foam tape.  For the finishing touches, I used my Big Shot to cut out the word, dream, from white cardstock and added some sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen; and I couldn't resist using these chipboard mini stars in three different sizes from Make It Crafty.  I first colored them gold with my Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker and added that extra sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen.

I am so thrilled how this card turned out and I hope it gives you inspiration to dream big dreams!!!
