Warm hands

Here's a little inspiration for you for the All Dressed Up new release images.

I've used ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils to colour this image.

She's then been cut out with a Spellbinders die and I've used some antique linen and vintage photo ink to distress it.

Below is a close up of the flower arrangement, this is a combination of flowers from The Ribbon Girl, Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts.  the pin from The Ribbon Girl and the wood chip is a Christmas embellishment from Scrapeinic.

Other embellishments used are some tiny wooden hearts which I've had in my stash for ever (think I got them at the Glitter Pot), a metal corner (this one was a Santoro one) and some brown organza rose trim from Lemoncraft.

All the design paper are hand cut and are from Dovecraft, Santoro and First Edition.

We also have a Facebook challenge which is themed Pretty Pastels this month

Hope to see you there :D
