Wallflowers are beautiful too.

The new challenge over at 
Sponsored by Doodle Digistamps
I was given the image 
and I didn't want to overpower her simple beauty
 so I selected  soft muted pinks and browns for her,
 including washy tapes to make subtle borders.
 Just for a change I cut an aperture into the base paper,
inked edges with TH Distress ink Victorian Velvet
and set the image behind it.
 I roughly coloured the base image with my promarkers
 as I was going to decoupage another layer
 *why waste ink*
I made a raised border/ribbon strip using
washy tape over a strip of paper,
and added strips of ribbon leaves and lace.
 I then made her a layered flower for her hair
from plain white paper flowers, coloured with 
inks and promarkers.
Finally some teeny tiny pearl drops for added 
texture, and the"I am Proud of you"
 sentiment from my Anna Griffin stash
