The Shabby Tea Room Week 178

Hi there folks! I'm guest designing over at The Shabby Tea Room this month! I hope you'll join me and TSTR design team every Monday this month for some crafting and fun. 

Here's the inspiration photo for Week 178. The challenge is to create a project using the colors from the inspiration photo as well as to include a metal element in it.

If this post could blush, it would! lol! I cheated a little. Heehee. Instead of using a metal element in my card, I made something that "looked" like a metal piece. I waned to "frame" my princess inside a gold metal frame. And since I had no idea how to do that with actual metal, I just embossed the frame using gold embossing powder. 

 I used little Emma and Dream a Little Dream from Paper Sweeties for my project. The frame was assembled using Florentine FripperyHoliday Labels No. 14, and Very Vintage Christmas all from Waltzingmouse Stamps. As for coloring, I used Derwent Inktense pencils on my image. I love using them! I haven't quite gotten the hang of it, but I'm practicing! :)

I hope I've brought you a little inspiration today. So don't be like me, grab your metal embellies and come join us! Heehee! For more inspiration, please head on over to The Shabby Tea Room to check out what the other DT ladies have in store for you! Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you again soon!!!
