The winners!

It's been so much fun reading your comments....I can just imagine you all peering at your computer screens! It almost makes me want to make you keep on guessing LOL. But, I'm not that mean. I'll put you all out of your misery!

The ribbon is white taffeta dyed with my Rose Red marker. Did you know you can do this? It's so quick and easy, and a great way to get whatever colour ribbon you desire! I find the taffeta dyes best out of all the Stampin' Up! ribbons. The first people to guess that were fellow demo Carol (by email) and Zarna. Zarna, send me an email with your address details, and I'll pop a ribbon sample pack in the mail for you! I know your addy Carol, so I'll pop a RAK in the mail :o)

I stamped the image (from "Natural Beauty") in Versamark ink, and embossed with black powder. "Kimmy" was the first person to guess that, so send me an email Kimmy, and I'll send you a tub of embossing powder!

I coloured directly onto the image with markers (Regal Rose, Rose Red, Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke) and used a Blender Pen to blend. The markers don't dry straight away, so it's easy to blend your colours, and the shimmer of the paper shines through. I did go around the outside of the image with my Going Gray marker. Fellow Demo Kim Tonnet was the first person to guess all that, so I'll pop a RAK in the mail for you Kim (I know your address! ;o)

The cardstock used was Rose Red, Mellow Moss, Regal Rose, Basic Black and Brushed Silver. The Mellow Moss had a lot of you stumped! I sponged some of the layers too, which may have thrown you off. My hint about the "most obvious answer" not being right was telling you that for once I didn't use Certainly Celery! The first person to guess the correct colours was fellow demo in Mackay, Karen. Send me an email with your address, Karen, and I'll pop a RAK in the mail for you.

Teresa Dabrowski, another fellow demo, gets an honourable mention for noting that I edged the Regal Rose cardstock with my Silver Encore inkpad!

The first person to guess all 3 parts correctly was "Louise" at 1:48pm today. There are a few Louise's in the comments, so make sure you're the right one before you email me! Louise, you get a 1/5 share of the Pretties Kit and this card! Email me with your address details, and I'll pop them in the mail to you.

Thanks everyone for having a go. I'll definitely be doing this again soon!


  1. Hi Marelle,

    Have emailed you! Thanks so much for a fun comp!


  2. Thanks Marelle, nice to have the answers. I was pretty close overall, didn't think about markers for dying the ribbon. You've already performed many acts of kindness for me, while I would love another, I know how busy you are so put it right to the bottom of your to-do list. Love from KimT


    I got my beautiful card in the mail on friday and I love it!
    Thanks again!
