Wish - Tiddly Inks Challenge - Princess or Prince with a background

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at Tiddly Inks we have been challenged to create a fall princess/prince card with a background.  I wanted to use all Tiddly Ink images because Christy has some AMAZING royalty images!  Castles, princes and princess's OH MY!  I chose this new image Princess Fiona and used Castle in the Sky and the fog from the Twisted Tree and Silver Moon set.  First, I printed the fog background on my Tim Holtz Ideology stack.  I then took a white pen and highlighted the fog in certain places.  I cut this background piece for a 5x7 card (4 3/4 x 6 3/4).  I set this piece aside and started coloring Princess Fiona with my Copics.  I LOVED coloring her dress - the wide open space allowed me to play with some shading.  This would also be amazing paper pieced.  I chose colors of orange and red for the fall theme.  I also colored the castle and stamped the word Wish on the cloud. 

I then shrank the castle image and cut out just the cloud to add to the background.  Once, I layered the castle on the background I popped Fiona and the cloud off the paper with pop dots.  I thought I was finished, but i felt like the whole effect needed something more.  I found a clear rubber stamp of a leaf that I had in my stash.  I stamped it and colored it with Copics right on the background.  I also added one to each cloud and colored that as well.  Last but not least I stickled her crown and some of the wispy fog pieces so that the overall effect would be a windy one! 

Thanks for looking and please check out the challenge at Tiddly Inks.  The DT has created so many wonderful projects with this theme!  Don't forget to stop by the Tiddly Inks store and pick up some of Christy's new images - they are just beautiful!!!
Enjoy!
