Christmas Tilda

Good morning bloggers from a wet and wild Blackpool this morning! I don't think I will be moving far from my craft room today lol!! I know I am not the only one who has loads of stamps that have never been used, you buy them because you love them and then they get stuck away somewhere or put in some file on your computer and there they languish! I saw this stamp and just had to have it because I do like Tildas but this one had a cat on it - perfect! Now I bought some Christmas Tildas last year and still haven't used them and I bought a mermaid Tilda in the summer because I love mermaids and never got round to using that so I was determined this one would be used!! Here she is:

She has been coloured with Copics. The papers are Pion - now I love these papers Teresa from Crafting All Day Creations uses them all the time and they are gorgeous, I have bought quite a few now but I could never bring myself to cut them - I know I'm sad.  The image has been cut with my Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and I have added Shabby White Frantage EP and Frantage Glass Glitter to the edges and along the bottom is Frantage Shaved Ice. Behind the image I have used the large motif from the SB Ironworks and added more Frantage to that.  I have then made a Poinsettia with Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die and added some of the elements from Tim Holtz Festive Garland - all have had the Frantage treatment!! I have used some lace and organza ribbon from my stash as were the flat back pearls.  For the star I have used a Dienamics die and added Frantage Blue Glass Glitter.  Here is a side view:

Mmmm how delish are those papers - wish I hadn't cut them now lol!!

This is lovely. I think we all suffer from not being able to cut up papers for a while! When I eventually get around to it they are a bit out of date! oh well. I love that poinsetta too - I have bought both of his 3D snowflakes dies though (couldnt choose between them!) so cant afford the poinsetta for a while! Enjoy your crafty day.
