Dolli

I love to watercolor the Sarah Kay images! I heat embossed the image first with black detail embossing powder and than colored the image with Stampin up reinkers in. On the bottom of the horizontal patterned paper i used a Martha Stewart punch that embosses and punches at the same time - i think the pattern looks nice with the die cuts from the Cuttlebug. The velvet ribbon is from the pretty new Raspberry Ribbon kit - it is up for sale now. There are really nice white ones and some antique colors in that kit.
Embellishments: Raspberry Ribbon kit
Some hardware: not good to see but one says "handmade with love" and a heart.
DP/CS: K&Company and Stampin up
