Blingy Tilda

Hi there! Let me just say that I LOVE everything that sparkles, shimmers, and shines! However, I did not originally plan for my card today to have so much bling lol.

I chose to make an easel card again (LOVE them) and it is for my friend Kathy. I was blessed to be able to stamp some of her Tilda images (today's included) and now I am hooked. I even placed my first Magnolia order today also. So, rather than the sentiment saying "you inspire me" it should say you enable me lol. Just kidding...Kathy does inspire me with her awesome work and you should definitely visit her blog. Anyway, dinner Tilda is colored with copics, stickles added to the outfit, rhinestones for the jewelry, and white gel pen for accents. I masked off the swing to create a scene with clouds. To make the clouds I used a piece of acetate as a stencil that I die cut with a scalloped oval and sponged ink over it. I colored some of the bridal flowers with my copics and blinged them up too.

stamps- dinner tilda, verve thoughtful florals and thankful accents, High hopes swing stamp
paper- DCWV citrus pack, pumpkin, neenah white from paper temptress
accessories- rhinestones, copics, oval and circle nesties, sewing machine, bridal flowers

Challenges that I am entering this card in:

Ack, this is adorable!!!! Is the swing a stamp, too. I tried to find it in your post but I only skimmed through and didn't see it.

Love your card and Kathy will, too :)!!

Hey Janette! Thanks for visiting my blog!
Your card is really cute!!! Such cheerful colors and I really like how you did the swing!!!
P.S. Those Papermania papers I used I had a friend from the UK pick up for me and it was VERY costly, but I love them. I haven't found a place in the US that sells them, but The Glitter Pot will sell to the US and they have at least 1 of the pads.
Hugs, Dena
