Wrapped Tilda for Christmas....


Hello,

I am still making Christmas cards! I really hope that you all have yours done and dusted by now!

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. I coloured the ribbon behind Tilda with frayed burlap and then sprayed some glimmer mist onto my craft sheet and picked that up with my paintbrush and coloured over the frayed burlap. This has given it such a gorgeous shimmer. I have added touches of stickle glue to her.



I have glimmer misted the flowers and then added more stickles.

The paper I have stamped snowflakes onto and around the edges. Then I have distressed with frayed burlap and stickled the edge. I also went around the edge with a pricking tool.

Thank you so much for looking and I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.

love
