Time for Tilda

Good morning everyone and hope you are all ok.   I felt that I had been ignoring my poor Tildas lately so I decided to have a little play with them.


She is actually blowing hearts but I changed it to butterflies so I could do some more on the card.  I have coloured her with Copics and Prismas but I am disappointed with how her hair turned out its too dark I think and dominates the image.  The papers are by Prima called Fairy Belle and there is a fairy in the right hand lower corner but you can only see her wrist!!  There is also a key dangling down there so I used one of my grunge board keys and embossed it with some gorgeous Stampendous Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel but then I covered the key with a butterfly - just in case you wonder why I plonked a key on it!!  I have made the flowers with a Memory Box die and put some gems in the centre.  The butterflies are cut out with Martha Stewart and Woodware punches and the little ones are fallout from a Spellbinders Nestie.  The corner dies are Whimsy.  The doily is a Cheery Lynn die - French Pastry which is one of my favourites.  I have finished with some cheesecloth behind the image and  ribbon and charm are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge - Things with Wings
Bearly Mine - Fairies
Craft Room Challenge - Emboss it
Oldie but a Goodie - Die Cuts and Punches (over 6 months: Stamp, butterfly punches, key, ribbon and charm)
House of Gilli - Emboss it
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Punches and Dies
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Flowers
Pile it On - Fairytale, Fantasy and Daydreams

That's it from me for today I am off to bake a Lemon Drizzle Cake courtesy of  a Mary Berry recipe.  Thanks for coming to visit me and for the lovely comments which are always a pleasure to read, take care xx

April said...

Love this card! the colours are so calm and soothing! I like the idea of adding the butterflies over the hearts, so pretty! You asked if I was making 2 cards on my WOYWW post, I'm just making one, but I know I won't use the scraps up from that lovely paper so I'm piecing them together then will stick a verse panel over the centre and use it on the inside of the card, the papers are too nice to go in a scrap box :o) x
