Jungle Tilda.........


Hello,

I hope you all had a great weekend. I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who came and said hello at my demo and classes at Crafts U Love. It was a joy to see you all. You are just so very lovely and it made my weekend! A very big thank you to Paula and Geoff and all the staff at CUL who really looked after me big hugs!

This is one of the cards I made for my demo. I coloured Tilda and the hummingbirds with distress inks. I also sprayed the birds with glimmer mist. I have distressed around the edge of the flowers with tattered rose. The corner dots are liquid pearls.

Thank you so much for looking.

love

Hello Kim!
Oh wow, your card is out of this world stunning!
Your colouring is super, and all details you've put on to your card are totally lovely.
Beautiful colours and papers.
I could look at this forever, it's an "eye-candy" (don't know if that's the word for it in English?)
Have a nice day!
