Fussy and Fancy Challenge ....Braid in my hair........A DAY FOR DAISIES

Braid in my hair

Good morning everyone wherever you are, hope you are
all having a good day.

A warm welcome to a new member Chris

I have some exciting news to tell.  I am going to join the 
Fussy and Fancy Team as a DT member I am thrilled
to join this team of very talented ladies. Thank you Sheryl for inviting me to your lovely Team.

So for my first project as DT I have choosen to do
A DAY FOR DAISIES image the theme for the challenge, is hosted by Beth.
The theme is Green and Pink. So pop over and join in with all your wonderful projects at Fussy and Fancy. Here
For this challenge the sponsors are Magnolia-loious      Here

I have coloured her with distressed inks into watercolour card.
You cannot see the papers very much, they are from Scrap and Craft. Here
The second layer is very plain but I have used stencils and stamps to create an added effect.

The image has been cut out on a Spellbinders die and I have distressed and sprinkled with Frantage.

Butterflies are Joy Craft which I have decoupaged, I made my own rolled roses and hand dyed my seam binding ribbon. I only used 2 colours to dye but it's amazing what other colours come out when they infuse together.

Thank you for looking

Have a good day wherever you are

Jules ❤️
