Loving Thee...

I've been having so much fun with my new My Favorite Things stamps the last few days.  While I do totally adore the knight and the dragon in this set titled "Good Knight"  I was so drawn to the castle that I went in a totally different direction than I'd originally planned.

So, I scrapped my original idea, grabbed my eclipse masking tape, this beautiful piece of  Collage Press designer paper and got to work!

I stamped the castle image four times, and I popped up the various layers to add lots of dimension to the castle.

I created a soft background by masking my first layer, and then sponging with inks to create the background scene.  

I've been loving all the banners that Anna Wight has been making, and I used her technique to echo the shape of the flowing banners on top of the castles to place my sentiment.  

This time, instead of the ribbon/bow combination that I've been hooked on, I used a paper flower, button, twine bow and then the last of my Mark Richards self adhesive pearls.  I just love those...    I did actually use ribbon on the card, but it is the super wide width SU Pink Pirouette ribbon, that I used as a layer instead of tying it at all.  

All of this month's stamps are just so fun to play with!  I tell you Kim manages to out do herself every month!  What's YOUR favorite so far?  

Starting tonight at midnight, we'll have a Blog Hop where many of the Design Team members will have previews for you, and I always love bopping around to see what everyone has done.  Just one more sleep till they'll be available for sale!

Who would have thought a castle could look SO pretty!!! LOVE all the layers and again, this photo doesn't do the card justice. I've seen it IRL and it's amazing!
