Puppy Love Tilda

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend. Phil and I have are trying to be organised and have been out Christmas shopping this morning. It's pouring down with rain today and really dark and dreary so I will be spending the afternoon in my craft room (perfect)! 

We have a new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia today. We have an easy peasy theme and that is 'Use a Die Cut'.

I stamped 'Puppy Love Tilda' onto a Noor Design oval die and coloured her using Copics and Prisma pencils. Around the ouside of the image I've sprinkled some frantage and used Glamour Dust for the lying snow. The papers are by Heartfelt Creations Frosty Blanket collection. Peeking out from the top is a Noor Design Circle die. Tucked behind the image I've stamped up a Noor Design stamp (English Christmas Postcard) with aged mahogany distress ink and added some frantage around the outside and pom pom trim along the top edge. The two sweet reindeers are also a Noor
Design Die, I've been waiting to get my mits on this die for ages and I was so happy when they arrived through the post box this week. I cut the dies and painted them with American Decor Chalky Finish paint and added a few dots and touches with Gesso. The flowers are a mixture from my stash and the Ribbon Girl. The lace, silver jingle bells and pom pom trim are also from the Ribbon Girl.
