 For today's project, I inked up the darling little PENELOPE LITTLE IRONING by the amazing Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps...


This little cutie was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Prisma Glitter to the lace and Wink of Stella Silver for the iron. The DP is from the First Edition Bella Rose paper pad.The pearls are from my stash and I have used WOC Chrysanthemum, Hip Rosebuds, a Cosmos Daisy and a Magnolia. The ribbon is PTI tied into a double flat bow to anchor a little iron button. I hope you like her!!
