Pink Lemonade for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps

 It's time for a new challenge at Polkadoodles and the theme this time is 'Use Ribbon or Twine'

I've been dying to use this gorgeous 'Antique Rose Print Burlap' ribbon that I bought from the Ribbons & Trims section of the Polkadoodles store back in January (it's not available at the moment but there are heaps of other gorgeous things in there). I've teamed it up with a flower I built using the Lemonade Fizz stamp soup collection.

I stamped the flower with Black Archival ink onto watercolour card and then painted it in with Pebeo Drawing Gum to protect it while I did the background. I mixed some Rose Red Brusho crystals with a smidge of the Purple in order to get the correct shade and just slapped it on around the flower (I wet the card first so that the colour spread out). I splashed on some white gesso and Buff Titanium paint with a wet paintbrush before drying it off and rubbing away the gum.

The leaves were coloured in the with a mix of Moss Green and Yellow Brusho crystals and I used Grey on the petals.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Creative Knockouts #148 All about the flowers

The Crazy Challenge #225 R is for ... (ribbon)

Thanks for stopping by,
