TTC#5 - Fairy tales with your twist!

Welcome to my favorite month of the year!! Why you ask? Well it's when the days gets shorter, mornings go colder and it beckons winter. And also because its my birthday montg! So you see, its a magical month for me.
Now, talking about magic brings me to this month's theme for The Twisted Challenges Blog. This month we are jumping into the realm of fairies, dragons, princes and princesses and of course magic!!

This month our theme is Fairytales + add your own twist.

Now you will ask me what is a twist? Twist can be anything. Change the ending of the fairytale, change the characters in the fairy-tale.. eg.. instead of 3 bears in Goldilocks, you could make them 3 pandas! Or you could change, that instead of a prince rescuing a princess, she comes on horseback to rescue him. Let your imagination go wild!!

Here's my inspiration, which may help to make it a bit more clear..

My fairy tale  is inspired a bit from Shrek and bit of Snow White. So here we have a dragon guarding the castle and a Prince ready to slay the dragon and rescue the princess! But where is the princess? That's where my twist comes, inside the card!!

Well, Princess Snow white wasn't waiting for the Prince to rescue her. She was done waiting around. So she took off to go shopping!!  And I love the quote I found on Pinterest, so apt.

So for the card, there isn't much technique to it as much, just die cutting and coloring with my copics.
The castle is a die from MFT( any surprise there?) Cut it from grey cardstock and stenciled the bricks with Hickory smoke Distress ink.
Used the cloud stencil to create a soft sky background with Tumbled glass distress ink.
Grass die again MFT.
The dragon and the knight are from MFT, Magical dragons stamp set.

Here is the Princess, colored in Snow White dress colors. She is Pure Innocence Birthday girl. 

Hope you enjoyed this card and the fun twist. 
Dont forget to check out other inspirations on the main Twisted challenges blog, as well as on Saumya and Neha's blog. 

This month we have a grab bag of fabulous gifts from Mudra. 

Till the next inspiration,
See ya soon!
