Purple Florence

It's Annette here today, with a new image from The Stamp Basket called Florence from Crafter's Companion.  These papers are particularly lovely and I've edged them in a plain purple card to give them a 'pop'.  I cut out and coloured my image, and raised her up onto a backing circle, onto which I'd chalked some background clouds and grass.

I'm also using some lovely new dies; the Locina Buckle and Fancy Blossoms.  I chalked the petals of the die cut flowers, and curled them around my paintbrush handle to give them some dimension.

Finally, I didn't have any purple seam binding, so I used some vintage ivory ribbon and just streaked along it with my marker pen (the wide nib end) which coloured it the shade of purple that I wanted.

All items are from The Stamp Basket as follows:
