The ribbons encircling Herald Angel were painted in muted tones--dusty rose probably best describes the overall look. I chose to brighten the ribbons a bit to coordinate with her turquoise dress.
Using three strands of DMC floss #600, 602 and 604, the ribbons were worked in an encroaching Gobelin stitch. The angel's lips were added in tent stitch with DMC floss #602.
