Hi there. Now, you have not come to the wrong blog, you hear it correctly- I have given in and used my first Tilda image today. I have been pretty much been resistant to using them until now. So, while I was in PA I was blessed to be able to stamp some images that my friend Kathy had. So without further ado, I bring you my first Tilda card- Princess Tilda....
I was really out of my element for this card because I was going for the shabby chic look. Hopefully I pulled it off. I colored the sweet image with copics and then when over it with a spica pen. I used stickles on her crown. I distressed all the edges with scissors and sewed them. I also further distressed the card base and the image panel with walnut stain distress ink. I used a flower punch for the big flowers and sanded their edges. The smaller flowers on top of them are the Michaels white bridal flowers which I colored pink with my RV10 copic marker. When the card was finished (which took me forever btw) I sprayed the whole thing with Diamonds glimmer mist to give the whole thing shimmer.
can you see the subtle shimmer?
I actually participated in 4 challenges with this card. The first is Cute Card Thursday which was to make a monochromatic card. The second was the Friday sketchers so my layout of this card was their sketch for the week. The third challenge was from the Just Magnolia challenge blog and it was to use punches on your project. The fourth was the Stamp Something challenge was was to stitch/sew on your creation, which is something that I like to do quite frequently on my cards.
