Happy Everything....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and your week is off to a good start!
Definitely got a spring in my step with more daylight and birdsong!
Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using 'Tilda with Blue Blanket' from Magnolia's Princes and Princesses Collection.


I have stamped Tilda with Archival Coffee onto 300gsm watercolour paper.
I have distressed all my edges with Pumice Stone and coloured my image with distress ink pads.
The die cut flowers are Magnolia's Doohickey's as are the Heart Tag and the Doily.
The Leaves, photo corner and swirls are Quickutz.


I made this card for MDUC Buttons and Bows, but unfortunately missed the deadline. Will have to try and made their next challenge which is their 3rd Birthday celebration. Congratulations MDUC!  For the seam binding I pressed a Spun Sugar ink pad onto my craft sheet. Sprayed this with water and then swished the seam binding into this. Scrunched it up and let it dry.


Here is the inside right. I have added some distressed stitching too.


The inside right and the Wild Orchid metal corner has been painted with distressed crackle paint.


I have added Star Dust Stickle glue and Sakura clear glitter pen to Tilda. The ovals are Nesties.

I will be adding my card to Ebay.

Thank you so very much for your visit. I wish you a very happy rest of the week!

love
kim xxx



Inks used:
skin - antique linen, tattered rose
hair - walnut stain
ribbon, dress and blanket - spun sugar, black soot
shoes - black soot, vintage photo
