Simon Says Stamp Challenge DT - Embossing

Woohoo! Time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamps challenge and as always we are sponsored by our lovely generous Heidi with a $50 credit voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store!!
This week our challenge is embossing - heat or dry - it's up to you. All the team are showcasing Belles n Whistles stamps this week except myself - there's always one isn't there!?

As you can see I've used this gorgeous Ribbon Hair Tilda - she's one of my favourites at the moment - so sweet! The papers I've used are from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby collection which I've distressed with Tim's paper distressing tool.

Here's a close up of the sweet Tilda. I've coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils again - getting the hang of them now I think, although this is my third attempt at her - the others were binned LOL. I've stickled the lower part of her gorgeous dress for some sparkly party attire :)! I've sat her on some gorgeous pink gingham ribbon from my stash.

I have embossed some pearlescent white cardstock with a Tim Holtz embossing plate. The flower was created Magnolia Doohickey Peony dies and I added some gems to the centre to resemble the flower Tilda is holding. The gorgeous leaves are another Doohickey die and so is the swirl.

The butterflies are from Martha Stewart punches.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x
