Challenge time with Dilly Beans

Are you all ready for the next challenge with Dilly Beans? This next challenge is easy peasy, use “ribbon.” Remember that you must use a Dilly Beans image plus the ribbon on your little piece of art to enter. Your entry will be in the running for the prize of three digis of your choice.

For my project I chose “River Framed.” Isn’t she a lovely one? Those eyes and the flowers in her hair just say something about her personality. Before I started coloring with my Copics, I first picked out some designer paper from Basic Grey’s Out of Print collection. These papers were perfect for the colors that I felt River deserved. I cut them to size, distressed with Peacock Feather Distressed Ink, and finally mounted on Kraft cardstock and Stampin’ Up!’s  Taken with Teal.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 11, BV000
Hair: E51, 53, 43, 57, 49
Dress: BG70, 57, 72, 75
Leaves & Eyes: YG13, 17, 21, G29
Flowers: R81, 83, 85, RV69, and
YR000, 02, 09, 16, and
BG70, 57, 72, 75
Background: W0, 1, 2, YR000, YG21

My ribbon is from my stash, and luckily was the perfect color. My fun flowers were accomplished by using the four smallest dies from Spellbinder’s Rose Creations. I then got one of my favorite paints, Viva Décor 3-DStamp Paint, in lime green and covered the die cuts. After everything was dry, I shaped the flowers, assembled, placed them wherever, then added the teal flat backed pearls. Now my little piece art is complete.
