Gardening and Knicker Elastic

And here I am with the second (very late) blogging of the new release digi stamp from Jellypark!  This one is called Woman Gardening and I've coloured it with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the sky - again for a softer finish.

The main background paper is from Dovecraft - Enchanted Fairytale 6x6 paper stack which I bought from Dunelm early in the New Year and it was half price!

The ribbon is from my stash and the brighter pink on the top is actually lacy knicker elastic - I picked up a few meters of it last time I went to the Scrap Store (and got some in mint green too!)

The chipboard butterflies I've had for some time and I've covered them with some pink paper and added some half pearls to the centre.  The dark blob to the centre of the earth on the image is a snail - I sort of overcoloured it that's why it looks a bit odd!
