Finally a card using Some Odd Girl Royal

Hi all, finally a card, did you miss me:)  Between work, family, other stuff happening and my mojo going on holiday, I haven't paper crafted or blogged anything like I would have liked!!  So hoping to remedy that and catch up with you soon.  Hope you and your families are all well. 
Today for my inspiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have used the gorgeous Royal from Some Odd Girl available from the store here, she comes with a crown, sentiment and banner stamp all of which I have used.
It was great to craft again and I had a lots of fun creating this card, tried a few different techniques new to me as well as using lots of pearls and flowers.

I stamped Royal using Lulu Lavender Memento, then I outlined her dress with my new Multiliner 0.3 PURPLE (a wonderful gift from a lovely friend, thankyou).  I thought it would be fun to have pink hair with added pearls (like those fancy pins you get for your hair), I slit her hair to place the crown coloured with spicas and added special effects.  I also used the sepia multiliner to outline some of the face and black multiliner to the eyes and lashes (which were a fiddle to cut round lol).  Sprayed her with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist. Added pearls to the birds and flowers.

The banner was stamped with Lulu Lavender Momento ink and black memento for the sentiment.
One of my first tries at crocheting a flower, the pearl flower and butterfly are made using a template.  Got the gorgeous pearl flower ribbon from my local craft store.

Copics, spicas, multiliners used as well as a huge selection of stamps, papers, digi images are all available from our Mad for Markers Store

Skin/Face - E000, E00, E01, E11, R20, E33, E37, multi liner Black and Sepia, Spica Lavender
