Romantic Tilda

Good morning,

Apologies for not posting much this week, but it has been a rather busy one. I hope you have all had a good week😊. Yesterday I went to the Make It craft show at Farnborough and boy did I have a good spend. I have been thinking about buying the Crafters Companion Gemini die cutting machine for some time and guess what I ordered one, they had them on special offer but sadly had run out of stock at the show, but I  should receive mine within a couple of weeks, I am so excited. I treated myself to lots more goodies too.

Today I am sharing a card I made a little while ago using an old Tilda called 'Romantic Tilda'. She has  been coloured with DI reinkers. To create the shading around her I have painted with Gansai Tambi paints. Instead of painting her cute socks I used some star dust stickles which makes them nice and sparkly.

The papers are by Lemoncraft from the Heart Painted paper pad.

Peeping out from the left hand side is an 8 point Joy die and to the right is a Little Darlings Lovely View die. The leaves and butterflies are also cut from  Joy dies.

The flowers are from my stash.

The lace, pearl string, pearl trim and papers are from the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Spun Sugar
Hat: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
Shoes: Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Black Soot
Umbrella: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot

Don't forget there is plenty of time left to enter our current challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia, where the theme is an easy peasy 'Anything Goes', we have a fabulous prize to give away  from the Ribbon Girls.

Well that's it from me today.

Have a fab Sunday.

Thank you for popping in.
