Fussy and Fancy Challenge #31

Good morning, peeps and TGIF! I hope you all have something good planned for the weekend - for me it'll be dog sitting the gorgeous black lab, Dylan for my son and working on DT projects! I'm joining a new DT but more of that another time.
Firstly, here is my project for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge, which this week is to use embossing or paper piecing on your project:

As you can see, I elected to use dry embossing, which is a technique I often feel I don't use enough - here I've used a Crafts Too embossing folder called 'Butterfies'. The sponsor for this challenge is Paper Pretties, who have some wonderful digi and conventional stamp images. I've used the digi image 'Sunny Bumbles' here, which makes a wonderful backdrop for Honey Tilda don't you think? Do go and visit my teamies as well to see what amazing work they've produced and join us in the challenge - there's a fabulous prize up for grabs!
The DP I used is MME 'Bloom and Grow' (very appropriate name!) and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've also used a Marianne D Doily die and distressed it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and the leaves are punched with a McGill punch I bought from The Hobby House.
The images were coloured with Copics and on the Tilda image I deepened the shadows with Prisma pencils.
Copics used:
Flowers: R12, R14, R17, YR12, YR15, YR16, YR18, G00, G02, YG63, YG45, YG67
Sky: B000
Tilda's clothing: R12, R14, R17, YR12, YR15, YR16
Tilda's wings: C0, C1, C2
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E21, R11, R20
Hair: E25, E27, E29, E31
I do hope you like this one, peeps and thank you so much for visiting me today!
