For my card I’ve used the delightful Ella the Ballerina Digital Stamp from AiFactory.She’s been watercoloured with Distress Inks.I’ve teamed her with some pretty K & Co papers,including the quote,and some lovely shimmery pearlescent card.Now,I’m totally rubbish at anything needlecraft wise but one thing I can make successfully are these rosettes,either from ribbon or,as in this case,lace.I’ve topped it with another handmade element.This is the first ribbon rose I’ve ever made.I used a quilling tool to wind it round,twisting it every now and then.More stitching holds it all together.I did actually glue it to the lacy rosette tho’ *blush*Supplies : Image : Ella the Ballerina Digital Stamp from AiFactory Colouring Medium : Distress Inks in Tattered Rose (skintones),Scattered Straw and Wild Honey ( hair),Spun Sugar (dress and shoes),Antique Linen (shading underneath her tutu and to ground her) Card & Papers : Pink card from stash,DP K & Co Tools : X-Cut Guillotine,Nellie’s Multi Frames Rectangles 2 and Borders 2,Big Shot,X-Cut Heart Corner Punch,Siesta Small Corner Rounder Punch,Quilling Tool Embellishments : Lace and ribbon from stash
