Some Odd Girl - Royal Mothers Day Card

I know mothers day has been and gone, but I have to show you the card I made for my mum.
I made up a Centre Step card (it was the first time I've made one) using this tutorial. I messed it up twice before reading the instructions properly :P Anyway... I used Crumbcake card for the base, layered up with Soft Suede and the now retired Sale-a-bration designer series paper. I cut a Spellbinders Oval out, and sponged it with Pool Party and a touch of Soft Suede ink then focused on this beautiful stamp from Some Odd Girl. I stamped her once on to watercolour paper and once on to patterned paper. On the patterned paper, I cut out just her dress and top and added shading using the Stampin' Write Marker that matched the paper. I then coloured her skin, hair, eyes and lips. I cut her out, and felt she needed the crown, so I stamped it using Versamark and heat embossed it using Gold Zing embossing powder. Her crown is only outlined, and it didn't have quite the oomph I wanted, so with my Versamarker and coloured the crown in completely and re-heat embossed it using more Gold Zing. (Oomph achieved!) I stamped the sentiment "You deserve the Royal treatment" and added some red bling to it and her crown.
I am entering this card into the Stampalot monthly challenge which my wonderful friend Annmaree told me about. Their challenge this month is Medals or Monarchs

Have a wonderful day!
