The Stamp Basket DT - Tilda loves flowers

It's Thursday and that means it's my day for posting on The Stamp Basket blog.  I have, of course, used one of the adorable Tildas from the Sweet Crazy Love collection...




Items from The Stamp Basket
Craftwork cards scalloped edge card blank
Magnolia - Tilda Loves Flowers stamp
Magnolia papers - cloudy turquoise hearts 6x6 & vintage turquoise 12x12
Dovecraft white flat lace 2 1/4"
Berisfords satin ribbon - aqua
Stickles glitter glue - diamond (on Tilda's flowers)

I've coloured Tilda with Prisma pencils and added lots of stickles on her flowers.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, cut out with nesties Labels 14 and inked with distress ink in 'broken china'.  Butterfly, doily and pearls from my stash.  The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts - it started out white and I used water and 'broken china' distress ink to give it a bit of colour, and then sprayed it with iridescent spray & sparkle.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

As usual for me, I did start off following a sketch, but ended up adapting it a bit too much - I couldn't bring myself to cover up the lace!

It's been lovely sunny day here today, all fresh and springlike... I love spring, wish it could stay like that all year round.  Have a lovely evening, will be trying to catch up with you all again later :o)
