Sweet November Preview Day 1 "Ilyse"

I was thrilled when Amy Young asked me to help with the reveal of her latest Sweet November release available for sale at All That Scraps on January 3. I love all Amy's mythical creatures but you have probably figured that out already if you've read my blog over the past year. Today's card introduces Princess "Ilyse" and, if you like her, come back here everyday for the remainder of the year for even more princess related projects. In addition, the Sweet November Design Team has created some awesome projects so be sure to click on over to Traci Porter and Rachel Schneider along with the talented (and sweet) Sweet November creator Amy Young who is offering a chance for some very generous blog candy.

So let's get started. I stamped the Sweet November image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers.  I then cut the image out trimming very closely around the edges (sometimes I like the white edging around the image, at other times I don't). I glued the image down onto the background paper in the middle only and then placed pop dots underneath her head and at the bottom of her robes. I included lots of jewels and pearls which are totally fitting for a princess.

Products: Sweet November stamp, Purple Onion Designs sentiment stamps, My Mind's Eye dp and decorative brads, Bo Bunny and Doodlebug jewels, Kaisercraft pearls, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E0000, E00, E02, R11; Hair/Veils-R00, R01, R20, R22; Robe-BG0000, BG10, BG11; Crown-Y11, Y21

I'll be back tomorrow for yet another Sweet November preview. Thanks for stopping by.
