From the heart......

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a great weekend! 
I am enjoying getting back to normal after Christmas and the New Year and regaining my energy again lol!


I have made a card today using this sweet Tilda from Magnolia's 2010 Christmas collection. I have stamped her with Versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour 300gsm hp paper.

I have coloured Tilda with Distress Ink Pads. I added a shading around her using Antique Linen and distressed my circle and everything else on the card with Walnut Stain.

The circles and hearts are die cut using nesties. The stickles I have used are Star Dust and Platinum. I have sprayed the flowers with Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold. The snowflakes are a Magnolia Doohickey die. 


To give some depth to my card I have used foam stickers to the circle and hearts.

I wish you all a great week and thank you so much for your visit. 

love
