Divine Tilda

Hi everyone,

I'm back with my DT card for Marvelous Magnolia and the theme is 'Anything Goes,

I have coloured up Divine Tilda, from the Waiting for Christmas collection, but I think she can be used all year round. I have coloured her using distress inks, now I know I still have a long way to go with the colouring side of it, but if I don't practice then I won't improve, so I decide to go ahead and use this image as I didn't have enough time to colour another.

The papers are by Maja, but I can for the life of me remember the name of them. I have stamped Tilda onto a Noor Design Oval die, I just love this die, it is so pretty and I've added some pearl string around the image. The beautiful blue satin ribbon, pom pom trim, Ivory Pearl beads, blue berries, ivory pearl square trim, cheesecloth and not forgetting the stunning diamante blue heart are all from the Ribbon Girl

Here I have used one of the Dutch Doobadoo wooden fences which I have painted with the Dutch Doobadoo structure paste and once dry coloured with Weathered Wood distress ink, then stamped over the top of it with walnut stain distress ink using one of postcard stamps from the English Postcard stamp set and added a little string.
