I'm in love with Tilda

Good afternoon everyone hope you're enjoying this lovely sunny day!

My title of my blog today refers to my love of Tildas and the fact that I have done a Valentine Tilda.  I can't leave my Tildas alone at the mo and just love them, especially the new collection - yummy!


Isn't she a sweetie?  Everything is a bit pinker IRL but you just can't get the colours captured correctly with the winter sun!  I've even done two pictures today:


Just to show the inside which is decorated to match with a balloon stamp from Magnolia to match the main image.  I have coloured her with a combination of Copics and Promarkers and paper pieced the balloons.  The gorgeous papers are from a pad I got at Christmas from my DH (which I have to admit I chose) which is by Echo Park called yours Truly - scrummy!  I have paper distressed the edge of the background paper and also distressed it with some white acrylic paint. I have distressed the doily and the edge of the image with DI - spun sugar.  The Corner bracket I covered with Versamark and white Embossing Powder which was heat set. I have used Spellbinders Nesties for the image and their Edgeabilities for the heart border, the border on the inside is a Martha Stewart one.  The button is from John Lewis and the bakers twine, pearls, ribbon and doily are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:
