New Challenge at Creative Inspirations - Tilda Loves Balloon

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well. So the blistering heat goes on, I am not a fan, don't get me wrong, it is lovely to see the sunshine, but I struggle with the heat. It has turned really muggy here now too. 

Anyway, today we have a new challenge at Creative Inspirations and the theme is ......

 'All Tied Up' 
simply include a bow as your finishing touch.

That's a nice easy for me as I add bows to everything,  I can't make a card without one lol.

I have coloured up another older Maggie, yes I am still working my way through my old stamps. She is called Tilda with Balloon. I have coloured her with DI reinkers and added some Stardust stickles to her balloon and her socks.

The base of the card has been made using a rectangle die, the papers are from Maja and I've painted some white gesso around the edges. 

The die peeping out from the left is a Marianne die which I have cut twice to give some dimension, once in card and the second time with coordinating paper.

The wispy bits poking out from underneath the flowers is called Silsa, a huge bag cost me £1 from The Works.

I have included links to the materials I have used (where possible) at the bottom of this post.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Lace, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress, Hair Band and Shoes: Victorian Velvet, Black Soot
Balloon: Shabby Shutters, Bundled Sage

There are TWO prizes up for grabs this month....

First prize:
Petal Lu - 30% discount from the store

Second prize:
Crafty Ribbons - a selection of these ribbons

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
