Paper piecing at Papertake Weekly .....

This weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge is 'paper piecing' and The Ribbon Girl are giving a £10 voucher to spend in their online store

I stamped Tilda with balloon and coloured her with copics then stamped again onto this lovely paper with the tiny pattern on it - I cut out her dress and her hair ribbon and used the same paper for the background.  I added lilac velvet lace, ivory organza pearl rose ribbon, 7mm orchid satin ribbon, a flower shaped acrylic button tied on with natural hemp twine.  I added Stardust Stickles to the flowers on Tilda's dress and inked around all edges of paper with walnut stain.

I replaced the balloon with a small round sentiment which is a Molly Blooms stamp - perfect fit :-)

For my flower arrangement today I used a Ribbon Girl cream daisy with mocha beaded stamens, a Kort & Godt lilac rolled rose, Wild Orchid lilac cosmos, ivory cherry blossom and mocha chrysanth - leaves cut with my good old Martha Stewart punch.  

All flowers, lace, ribbon, button, twine and stickles are from The Ribbon Girl
I hope you can enter this weeks challenge, it was great fun 'dressing' Tilda, a bit like the cardboard dolls and paper dresses I had when I was a little girl.
I'm entering the Marvellous Magnolia challenge ' add a bow ' (even though mind is very small)
Magnolia Down Under challenge - lace and flowers

See you soon,
