TUESDAY April 12, 2011- Bearded Iris Lois Vicky Dawn L. Anne Peggysue Connie Emily Karen - ME! Patty Roxie Vicki Liz Geri Lynn Emily N. Neva Silvia Patricia Chrissy Guest Designer, Lillian Mark’s Finest Papers I stamped the image onto watercolor paper using versamark ink and embossing with gold before coloring with watercolor pencils. I airbrushed it before removing from the Spellbinders Labels Four die and then flicked it with the purple that was on my watercolor brush. I then edged the panel with a Krylon gold leaf pen. This is mounted onto Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendant which was cut and spread out to fit in place. The luscious satin ribbon was formed into a bow and hot glued onto the main panel. I added the long long beautiful hat pin (also from MFP) to the bow. Since it is so long, I added a few more pearls to it as well.
