Whiff of Joy DT - Pink and Pearls

Woohoo!! It is time for a new challenge at Whiff of Joy challenges and we also have our new team mates, Julie, Durvina, Dunja and Karina playing along for the first time too! Our challenge this fortnight is a gorgeous combination - pink and pearls - perfect for each other and great for using the gorgeous new princess images from the Whiff of Joy autumn stamp kit!! I have used two of the new images to create a name plate for my daughter's bedroom door.

In this picture you can see the hanger I created. As it is me who has to gloss paint the doors in our house I really don't like the idea of sticking things on them that might cause them to be repainted LOL so I devised this hanging system which means I can simply put a drawing pin in the end of the length of ribbon on the very top part of the door where noone can see any damage it might cause! The gorgeous chiffon ruffle edged ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I just adore all the images in this new kit, this one is Rose Princess and I've teamed her with the gorgeous rose trellis to create a little scene. I've coloured the images with copics. The gorgeous princess crown paper is by Magnolia.
I added some little butterflies to flutter around the garden and added some liquid pearls to the very top parts of the rose trellis.
I have added lots of gorgeous roses from my stash along with leaves cut with Magnolia's rose leaf doohickey. I couldn't resist adding a cute little Maya Road chipboard bird which I've painted with white acrylic paint and inked the edges with victorian velvet distress ink. I then added a tiny little black pearl for the eye.
Here's a close up of the little bird - isn't it cute!?
On the other side of the frame I added some more roses and leaves.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy challenge. Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning pink and pearl creations! Thanks for looking! x
