Once Upon a Time Challenge at Aurora Wings

It is the midway point of our Once Upon a Time challenge at Aurora Wings. It is time for the Stella Team to bring you some inspiration for the second half of the challenge. Your creation should be inspired by a fairy tale, and mine is inspired by Snow White and the evil queen who doesn't want to give up her title of being the fairest in the land. I used the image "Dark Princess" for my project. 

Dark Princess
I coloured the image with Copics. For her headpiece, I used gunmetal and frost colored Stickles. It is actually very sparkly in person, but I had a hard time catching it with a camera. The angled picture below, hopefully, gives you a better idea of what I did. For the rest of my card I wanted to keep the dark feeling, so I used the Distress Mini Square Background stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps on a red mat, then darkened up the edges of that with some black distress ink. I added a few black pearls at the bottom right corner, and glued on some red and black flowers. 

Below are the direct links to the stamp I used at the Etsy store and the Aurora Wings digi shop:
