Guest Monday with Suzi McKenzie!

Hi, guys!

We're glad to have guest designer for June, Suzi McKenzie back with us today for a pretty new project!

Here's a beautiful wall hanging using Princess 4 and Prince Ian:

...and here's a bit from Suzi in her own words about her Guest Designer Monday project:

As soon as I saw Prince Ian and Princess Anya, I knew i wanted to create a ballroom inspired scene.  That's what today's project is all about a magical prince and princess at a wonderful ball.
I Stamped Ian and Anya onto watercolour paper, then masked them so i could stamp my checker board floor.  I then used a combination of pearl paints, watercolour pencils and distress ink to colour my scene.
I added some flourishes and a little shading with some black distress ink to finish the scene.

I decided to turn it into a little wall hanging, so i cut two identical squares of black card stock to matt my image onto.  I sandwiched a piece of black ribbon in the form of a loop between the black card stock to create my hanger.
I then added my image, aslong with a diecut border, some ribbon, a pretty paper rose and some butterflies, before finishing it all off with some sentiment tickets.

I love how the finished project turned out, as the pearl paints give it a wonderful magical shimmer, which i hope you can see in the picture.

Thanks so much, to Suzi for the beautiful project and we'll see you again soon!
Be sure to tune into day 2 of PREVIEWS for July today!
