Sweet Pea Stampers - A Recipe

It's another week at the Sweet Pea Stampers and this week we have a fabulous recipe for you.
Your recipe is :-
4 papers
2 shapes
2 ribbons
1 button
1 sweet pea image

I have used this wonderful Sweet Pea image called Flowing in Blue. However as you can clearly see I have not used blue to colour my image. But what a beauty this girl is, I fell in love with these images the first time I saw them, and it is hardly any wonder is it? Go over to the Sweet Pea website to see all of the wonderful Sweet Pea Designs I challenge you not to fall in love with at least one of the fabby designs.

We have a fabulous prize this week for a lucky winner chosen by random org, you can win the fabulous stamp "Dance of the Butterfly" as well as a week as GD on the Sweet Pea Stampers.

I used a combination of pro-markers and copics to colour my image, but i'm still working on the shading and blending, I must go check out those tutorials again!

The background to my image was coloured using my distress ink pads in colours - spun sugar, and worn lipstick. Aren't those names just scrumptious???

I have used a combination of satin ribbon and some spotty grossgrain ribbon (dovecraft) with the addition of the flower button. Now I have no idea where those buttons come from but i would love to get my hand on more if anyone can help???

Again using one of my favourite Martha Stewart punches and the addition of some flat backed pearls, which i have been working my way through, it will soon be time to re-order, me thinks!
Have stickled around the butterfly, as I had to get some glitter in somewhere!
