Pretty Little Ribbon Shop DT - Pearls and Lace

Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and this month our theme is Pearls and Lace - always a great combination!!  I created a door or wall hanger for my good friend Louise's new baby girl, Ella!  The base is a wooden heart from The Hobby House and I covered it with some Claudine Helmuth Sticky Back Canvas and painted the edges with gesso.
 I have stamped the gorgeous Tilda Blowing Hearts onto the canvas and coloured her with copics.  I love the effect this gives - almost ilke a cross stitch!  I added some stickles to her wings and lace trims and white dots to her cheeks with a gel pen.
 I made a flower from felt using a doohickey peony die and added a button from my stash along with some twine from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  The crochet flowers are from The Hobby House.
 The gorgeous daisy lace around the edge is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop as are the pearls.  The butterfly is from the Hobby House, painted with gesso.
 The felt letters and tassle are from my stash.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this month at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Challenge!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations - as always they will blow you away!  Thanks for looking! x
