Blue Princess

      This is my first time playing along in the Rabisco Progressive Challenge, which can be found on Facebook.  They have a new image from Moondrea Designs every month which you can get free if you played along the previous month.

     I loved the image for April which looked to me like a princess although it's titled "Sunflower Maiden."  To my mind, she was begging to be done in monochromatic shades of aqua.  I printed the image and used my Sanjoki markers to color both it and the square behind the image.  I added the sentiment before printing, then cut it with a Tonic Studios die just slightly larger than the image.  That gave it a white frame and kept the sentiment as a single piece with the image.  I inked the edges of that piece before putting it on the card.

     I used turquoise CS for the card base, added a narrow strip of dp (DCWV), and put a tiny, enamel dot on her forehead.

Love how you colored your printed image with facial only and using a light blue for the frame using Twisted Sister's optional twist and embellishing with the two flowers, still keeping with CAS. Very pretty card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Crafter's Cafe.
