Mollie in purple


Our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge today is to use gingham papers and/or ribbon. Some of you may not recognise this gorgeous girl as a Pink Gem image but she is one of a range of vintage images available and I love them all. They are a joy to colour and great for practicing skin colouring.
Image - Pink Gem Mollie
Medium - Copics
Paper - Papermania Capsule Heather
Ribbon - candy win
Wooden hearts - Little Claire coloured with Copics
Flowers - Prima and The Ribbon Girl
Other - Doily and diecut from a DTDF order
