Pretty Tilly

Hello lovely people,

It seems like you weren't so keen on our last challenge of a sketch at In The Pink so it's time for a new and much easier theme...

Ribbons and bows

I thought I would do something a little different this week and alter a can.  WARNING - lots of photos coming up!
Here's the cocoa can before it underwent a makeover;

And this is what it looks like now;

Ok, the image panel is maybe a little large for the can but I didn't want to try to fussy cut her as it's not one of my strong points!
I popped the image panel on some foam pads and added a bit of embellishment at one side, then scattered a few butterflies here and there.

These little heart stems are my new favourite die and I just know they are going to be so versatile :-)  You can also see the ribbon and lace bow - that's the theme sorted!

This parade of pictures wouldn't be complete without a close up of Tilly and I had fun trying out a funky deep pink hair colour :-)  There is a tiny touch of Stickles on her wing and spots of Stickles and pearl pen for the fairy dust but it's not so obvious in the photo.
