Have I mentioned that I'm THRILLED to finally own this set?! The bidding competition was stiff on ebay! I've also owned these pebble brads from Making Memories for several months and have been scared to use them. I hope Miss Banty does them justice. :0)
Little Miss Banty was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol then dotted on the black with a Signo white gel pen and dotted on the white with a black artist's pen.
Sponged So Saffron ink around Banty, stamped dirt with Itty Bitty Backgrounds dots using Close to Cocoa ink (learned from SweetMissDaisy), sponged Creamy Caramel over dirt, then sponged Close to Cocoa around outside edges.
Black stitched grosgrain ribbon was adhered by running it through the Xyron and then taping it with double-sided sticky tape to the back.

GORGEOUS! I just got the chicken set that is retiring from SU! Maybe I could come up with something similar. Your layout is great. I love what you did with the ribbon! So many details to look at, I'll just stare and drool for a while if you don't mind! TFS! :)

Love the colors and the whole composition. Also appreciate the details that you provide - - as a new stamper, I need all the tips, hints, and ideas that everyone is willing to give. Thanks for sharing.
