New challenge at Paradise of Stamps - Tilda with Heart Rice

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a good week, I am really enjoying my week off, we have been away to South Wales for a couple of days, the weather was awful in the afternoon of the first day, it absolutely poured with rain, but we had glorious sunshine on the second day and did a fair bit of coastal walking.

Today we have a new challenge at Paradise of Stamps and our theme this time is....

'Ribbon and Lace'

I am waiting for my new Maggies to arrive , so I have coloured up Tilda with Heart Rice using DI re-inkers in my favourtie colours.

The shape has been cut using a Crealies rectangle die and I've cut a  Tim Holtz  Torn Notebook die in co-ordinating papers which I have attached along the left hand side edge and on the coloured image.

The papers are by Maja from the Autumn Basics collection, which have been distressed along the edges. All the pretty embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Gathered Twigs, Antique Linen
Dungarees and Shoes: Weathered Wood
Blouse: Aged Mahogany,Spun Sugar
Heart Rice: Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters

The winner of the challenge will join us in a GDT spot.

Well that's it from me today.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Thank you for popping in.
