Gellin' Princess Crown card

This was  a GREAT challenge at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.   I've not make a gel window card before...and did i learn A LOT! LOL

1. You do not use Hair Glue instead of hair gel (glue is opaque)
2. Sanitizer works as well as hair gel
3. If your window is odd shaped and so is your card, the rectangle gel baggie will stick out of the shaped card and you will have to be creative to tuck it down in.

What i did:
I cut out the card shape with my cricut, but instead of having the "stencil" cut inside of the crown, i used the layer as the cut inside of the card for my gel window.  I cut out half of the inside of the card so it would match up as the gel bag liner.  i had to reverse the image to make it fit inside AND i put the image as far over to the side of my mat as i could so that only the reversed front side of the card would be cut out.  I colored my image using my copics and then i cut it out.  i saved the reversed inside cut out for the inside of my card and stamped it with a sentiment to show through my gel window.   Making the card this way i'd rate making this card as an 8 with 10 being the hardest.

Copics used:
Skin- E53, 00, 02
Hair- C3,5,7
Outfit- B41, 34, RV10, 11, G000, G02
Wings- N0, Gel roll pen
