From Tilda with Love......


I hope you are keeping well and are having a good start to the week.

I have made a love tag using Magnolia's 'Bonny Tilda' from the With Love Collection.

I have tried something new by stamping Tilda out with Archival Grey before colouring her with distress ink pads.
The stickles on her wings and hair are Star Dust.
I have torn Magnolia's 'Rose Romance' paper and distressed this with walnut stain and stickle glued the edge. The DooHickey Wings have been sprayed with glimmer mist.
I cut two elements from the paper to make mini postcards.

The flower and leaf die are Magnolia Doohickeys. These I have then white washed with paint and then glimmer misted.

I have used Magnolia's Doo Bee Pop in Peony to make my heart. 
This I die cut using Magnolia's Heart Tag and then added paint, stickles and liquid pearls.

The Seam Binding, Gold Thread, Cheesecloth and Charm are from The Ribbon Girl

Thank you so much for visiting with me!
Have a great rest of the week!

A Sprinkle of Hearts just for you!


Great that the weekend is here. I hope you are all keeping well and have nice things planned.
Today I would like to share a card I have made using Magnolia's 'Tilda Blowing Hearts' from the With Love Collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads and edged everything with walnut stain.
I have used a Craftwork shaped card and cut my paper to fit the shape.

The flowers are WOC and The Ribbon Girl.
The twirly bead, pins, bead string, lace, ivory pearl rose organza and seam binding are from The Ribbon Girl.

The papers are Magnolia's Love Collection and I love cutting out the postcards from the Love Postcards paper so perfect for adding to my cards.

I die cut Magnolia's Heart Tag and Swirl branch and stamped the Postmark another favourite stamp of mine onto the paper. The seam binding I sprayed with water and scrunched then left to dry.

Stickle glue Star Dust.

Thank you so much for visiting with me it is so great to have you join me!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments they mean so much!

Have a wonderful weekend!
