Insta Tilda

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have a had a good week and it's almost the weekend so what could be better! It has been a pretty busy week so I am looking forward to a bit of rest and relaxation this weekend. Well I hear the beautiful spring weather is leaving us now and rain is on the way, but I'm not complaining too much as would you believe it the garden needs it, the lawn was  beautiful a couple of weeks ago, but now there are already dead patches forming.

Anyway enough rambling from me. I made this card for fun using Insta Tilda from the new collection. I also ordered the camera die to go with her, but annoyingly I am still waiting for it to arrive. 

To create the shape I used a Go Kreate die. I used a mixture of DI markers and reinkers to colour Tilda. The papers are from the Romance paper pad by Joy crafts. The doily peeping out at the top and the butterflies are Sizzix dies and I painted Dutch Doobadoo Stucture paste around the edges of the butterflies and added some oval pearls to the centre. I made the butterflies using silicone moulds and air dry clay. The flowers, ribbon and lace are from my stash.

Distress Inks list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Top: Seedless Preserves
Trousers: Pumice Stone
Shoes: Gathered Twigs
Camera: Pumice Stone, Seedless Preserves

I have put the links to the materials used where possible at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

That's it from me today, I will be back on Sunday.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Thank you for popping in.
