Good morning Monday!

Today this creation is going for 2 challenges. ABC 'ribbon' and A Spoonful of Sugar 26 'Blooming marvellous', so instantly I knew it wasn't going to be a christmas card!

The flowery papers are from the energy range Summer Driggs website summertime designs. This talented lady has designed wonderful papers all linked to her family and offers them for free downloads. The stripes are from Shabby Princess Promises range free downloads.
The ribbons are from own stash and the embellishment in the middle of the bow is part of my candy that come in a chain and you cut off what you need.
Tilda at the sea-side is the stamp I won from jeanettes candy, Thank you Jeanette! I've paper pieced her with the stripes from the leftovers from the backing paper, Copics are used even though I don't feel confident as to how to use them properly, slowly but surely I'll get there, RV04 for ribbon in hair and R00 for skin but I don't know how to do the rosy cheeks yet. The rest is lightly watercoloured. Someone out there must be thinking 'why mix the two colouring methods?' but I don't feel I have the hang of it with the Copics totally and I need some add on colours to expand into other softer colours.
Her frill has been accented with crystal dust, doodled around with pink gel pen, sentiment using Melissa Frances clear stamps in black Stazon and silver sequins to finish off!

Don't forget to enter my candy on the post to the right. Happy Crafting all!
