Die-ing for a Challenge

I can’t believe it’s a whole month gone since we launched our first Die-ing for a Challenge, seems like a couple of days ago!  Today is challenge day, and our second challenge is Blue and Brown.  I received these new Inkido papers from Dies to Die For last week so had to use them, they are totally sublime!  And I love that you get four 6x6 sheets on each page and they all work so well together.

The gorgeous stamp is Little Cottage Cuties - Apple Blossom by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  I LOVE her! All four of the collection are a total dream to colour and the hair!!  A total joy to colour.

She has been coloured with a mix of Copics, Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

The sentiment is also by Whimsy Stamps, from the Everyday Mini Postage Stamp Sentiments set

The flowers - 30mm wild rose, 25mm wild roses, 20mm roses and 15mm roses; as well as the pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The border die is a Tim Holtz on the edge (butterflight) die.  And the ribbon was one of my bargain finds when I was in the USA – 50cents for a 50 yard roll!!!  If I lived over there my house would collapse through the foundations lol!!

Enjoy the rest of your day, and to all the mams have a wonderful Mothers Day.
