Cinderella's Many Forms

There are so many wonderful items to choose from in this months Cinderella Kit at Alpha Stamps. Decisions, decisions. Do I go with the pitiful Cinderella being pushed around, or the magical beauty taking on her destiny? How about both! 

And luckily I was using this 6x6 Shadowbox as my base which gave me lots of room for plenty of details and embellishments. And I've always been a huge fan of pink and black.

I didn't want all of my chipboard silhouettes to be the usual "black" so I decided to do some with a bit of color. I used a couple of shades of pink from Tim Holtz Distress Paint Line and for my black silhouettes I used more Distress Paints in Black Soot and Tarnished Brass. It gave a bit of dimension and character to my shapes. 

I always like dimension and one favorite "tool" from my creative kit is to use adhesive foam to make images stand out, and also stand out further then others like the black silhouettes below.

Some pearly white paint and a pink nose and feet help my cute mice take center stage. 

Some of the chipboard Cinderellas also got a sprinkling of Flower Soft in Sweet Pea, but there are several colors to choose from. 

Vintage pocket watches are a great way to create a mini magical creative spot. I used an authentic one but Tim Holtz also has a wonderful faux version.

Faux pocket watch body, with glass front insert, for creating collaged pendants. The back pops out (with a bit of prying... you needn't worry that it will open unexpectedly). 2-1/2" tall.

How do you like my mini Cinderella book? I used the Brothers Grim Books Collage Sheet and a plain Miniatre Book to create this version.

You can also find other book themed collage sheets like Jules Verne Books, Mystic Book titles, Plain Books, and so many more in several sizes. Follow this book link to check them out. 

Charms galore! Do a search and see how many items you can find. A full supply list can be found at the bottom of this post. 

Oh no! It's midnight! You know what that means.......
