Christmas Ribbon and Random Bits

I've had this image stamped for ages and after a mega tidy up a few weeks ago I decided to get it coloured! And when I saw the sketch for the Sweet Stampin challenge, I thought it fitted perfectly!

The stamp is from Charmed Cards and is Rosebud Pixie which I won ages ago. She's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added some stickles to her wings.

Papers are from Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons cd which I've just inked around the edges and doodled two wavy lines with a blue gel pen. The silvery white ribbon is actually Christmas ribbon which I bought for 25p a pack in B&Q during the January sales (Jacob actually spotted it - he's got such a good eye for these things!) and the large blue ric rac type is a generous donation from Alex and from Ikea originally.

The flowers are from my stash - I've layered them up for a bit more interest and the dragonfly brads are too (and the wing shape is echoed with Rosebud Pixies' wings!) And the plain brads I found in my stash.

  • Papers: Sundae of Seasons from Polkadoodles
  • Image: Charmed Cards and Crafts, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash or previously donated
