Tulip Tuesday......

Hello,

I hope you are doing well and your week has started a good one.

Oh my I have been having the most fabulous time playing with my new sweeties. I just had to choose, it was so hard. But, my heart went out to this little sweetie.


I have coloured my sweet Tilda with distress ink pads. I have stamped her onto waterford 300gsm hp watercolour paper. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with frayed burlap. The die cut is a nestie shape.

I found the doily at the Hobby House stand with Bev I love these and I sprayed it with iridescent gold glimmer mist and distressed it with frayed burlap.

The sweet little Magnolia heart I got on Saturday is distressed with faded jeans and frayed burlap and sprayed with iridescent gold glimmer.

I was so happy to find these gorgeous tulips on the Magnolia stand too I love them. I have glimmered them and stickled glued with star dust. The stamped Magnolia borders are inked with versafine sepia and I have coloured them in with sakura star dust clear pen. The butterflies are martha stewart which have been glimmered, distressed and stickled. I have added pearls and liquid pearls to the background paper.


Thank you so very much for visiting me and I wish you a wonderful day!

love

Beautiful card, I love this image, I spent ages at the Magnolia stand choosing which ones to buy and this was one of them - unfortunately when I got home I hadn't picked it up! Oh well.

I love how you have coloured it and added the stickles

Oh my, another stunning card Kim! The colours are delicious and such a lovely image of Tilda.

I spent ages at Hobby House (missed those lovely tulips, drat it) and the Magnolia stand on Saturday. I need time to play with my goodies now but unfortunately I have 3 adult men's cards to make over the next couple of weeks. They always take me ages and somehow I don't think they'd appreciate a Tilda card, Lol!
