Dare U 2 Digi Stamp #7 Lilac & Lemon

Hi folks!
It's a colour challenge over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp this week and what a pretty combo it is too... Lilac and Lemon.  The DT have provided a great array of designs for your inspiration so don't forget to hop on over to the site.  My Rosabella has dusted off her wings and come out to play for this card.
For the background I used a large foliage/vines stamp (QVC Foam Stamp) that I stamped with versamark ink and swirled Lemon & Lilac Cosmic Shimmer mica powders over with a dry brush.  I couldn't really capture the beautiful shimmer on the photo but if you click on the image you will be able to see more detail.  I used the same technique for the sentiment which is from Whiff of Joy.  I have used the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch border punch and butterfly punch.  The ribbons are from my stash.  Rosabella has been coloured with Copics and the Cosmic Shimmer Mica powders that I mixed with a tiny bit of water to produce perfectly toned shimmer paint. I have also added glitter to her hair and wings and have used a self adhesive pearl for the centre of the flower in her hair.  I then covered the whole stamped and coloured image with Glossy Accents encasing the glitter and even the pearl.
I hope you are able to join in with this weeks 'Dare' and I look forward to seeing your take on Lemon & Lilac.
Ciao for now!
