Tremendous Thursday....

Hello,

I hope your week has been going well and everything is good with you.


I have made a card today using Magnolia's Tilda in the Garden from the You are so Special Collection.

Tilda has been stamped with versafine black onyx. I have used 300gsm hp water colour paper. My edges have been distressed with walnut stain. The stickles I have used are platinum and star dust.


I would like to enter this card into Bunny Zoe's Challenge - Spring flowers Everywhere
Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge - Spring Colours (thanks Lisa Jane)

I thank you so much for your visit and I wish you all a great rest of the week and a wonderful weekend!

love

Debbie said...

Beautiful card as always Kim.
When you do your edges with the walnut stain, do you take the ink pad straight to the paper or do you use a sponge from the ink to the paper? I am trying to make the edges look crisper like yours, mine are a tad messy sometimes?
I love those papers and like the rolled back edge, a super touch. Thank you for your kind words when you call at my blog, they are lovely. Debbiexx

Vicky said...

Hi Kim,
Oh my word, this is so beautiful chick, I just adore Tilda, her little dress is so cute...
Can I pester you and ask what size card you made,the balance is so perfect. I think I go wrong on that score and end up adding way too much to my designs because I make my base cards too big...Hope you don't mind me asking

Hope you have a lovely day, take care
