"Life as a Diva" is the theme for the Die-Versions new release this month.  Today I wanted to showcase the Sweet Petite Princess die.

I cut her as a silhouette and created a scene where she's looking out a window.  The curtains are rubber stamps from 100 Proof Press (Left Curtain Parting; Right Curtain Parting) which were stamped with Distress Ink (Fired Brick), heat embossed with Clear embossing powder, and colored with Copic markers.  The floor is a rubber stamp by Beeswax Stamps (Fancy Floor), which was stamped with Distress Ink (Gathered Twig).

The background was created using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Rosa by Anna Griffin) and white pigment ink, which was lightly rubbed over the embossed areas.  The flowers have been in my stash for ages.
