Tremendous Tuesday….


I hope life is treating you well today.

Just wanted to share with you a little card I made.

craft barn hilda eating cookie 

I have coloured Hilda with distress ink pads. I stamped her onto 300 gsm watercolour paper using versafine black onyx. I used a nestie to die cut the circle and scalloped circle and added stickles around the edge after distressing the background with antique linen. The paper and flowers are distressed with walnut stain.
