Tilda's Adventure.....




Hello,

I have made a card today using images from the new Magnolia's Pet Collection.

I have coloured my card with distress inks. I have masked Jungle Tilda and stamped the waterfall background behind her. Then after I had coloured my card I masked Tilda again and sprayed glimmer mist over the background to give a soft shimmer effect. I added some stickle glue for a bit more sparkle too.

I have distressed the background with broken china and frayed burlap. The rest of the papers are distressed with frayed burlap.

Thank you so much for looking!

love
kim x
