I then set about decorating with lots of lovely goodies from the Ribbon Girl. I used lilac velvet ribbon lace at the bottom of the body and some velvet ribbon around the waist and I hid the join with a resin flower.
I decorated the base with lots of gorgeous flowers including the Kordt and Godt Beaded Ivory Roses which are just stunning and I added lots of lilac paper flowers after I had wrapped the base with lilac lace . You can just about see that I used a Kordt and Godt beaded white swirl branch to fill the gap between the base and the covered kebab sticks.
As a finishing touch I added a purple hat pin to the top of the mannequin. I am so pleased with the way this turned out, it took me a while to make but was really worth it and the finished piece now has pride of place on my windowsill above my craft desk. I hope you will be able to join us for this month's Challenge. We have a fabulous inspirational photo for you and my teamies have made some wonderful creations as usual.
