New Colour Challenge at the Ribbon girl - Whimsy Iris

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have one more week left and then we break up  for half term, wow I can't believe how quickly the time has gone!

This morning we have a new colour challenge at the Ribbon Girl and the colour this month is Aqua.

I have coloured up a Whimsy stamp called Iris and edged it with Ivory Pearl String. She is coloured with Distress Ink Markers and Reinkers. The papers are from LOTV and are called 'Beach Bliss'. Tucked underneath the image is some cheesecloth  and just peeping out from the top is a new Noor Design Viewmaster die.  The banner and text stamp are also from Noor Design.

The tag is also by Noor Design UK and to the right of it are some sweet Aqua Vintage Blooms .

I've given her wings some extra dimension by decoupaging them and added some stickles for a bit of sparkle. 

All the flowers and beautiful Ivory Lace leaves are from Ribbon Girl, tucked underneath them is a Noor Design Leaf Swirl die.

The lace is so pretty and the ribbon is really soft and easy to form a bow with, in the centre I've placed a Diamante Spacer and Aqua Blue gem.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress, Wings and Trousers:  Peacock Feathers, Gathered Twigs
Flowers: Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar

The lucky winner of this challenge will win:

a set of Marianne Dies

Well that's it from me today, enjoy the rest of your day!

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
