Apologies to all those who aren't keen on Miss Tilda, but I seem to be a bit addicted at the moment! This stamp has actually been used... but only once just after I bought her. I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, with prisma pencils for the shadow underneath her. The papers are from an old K&Co pad. The card base is cream - for once it's not just a dodgy photo lol.
I decided to have a go at making a flower from lace (I've got a huge box of lace that needs using), and I don't think it turned out too badly for a first attempt. The fancy button in the centre is from a huge box of buttons that were given to me by my mum's hubby - they were his mum's collection, she was a bit of a hoarder so there's loads of them! It started out gold and I painted it with some acrylic paint (bought in many colours and then never used), dabbed on some distress ink and sprayed it with iridescent spray & sparkle. Added some more lace and some more of that fancy trim from the offcuts bag, a punched butterfly and a Pink Petticoat sentiment.
I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
