Tilda Tulip




Hi everyone hope the week is going well for you. A card today with the gorgeous tulip Tilda which I was lucky to receive on Saturday. I've also used the Magnolia Windmill and tulip stamp and masked them all to make the little scene, I see her in the beautiful Netherlands at tulip time :). Everything is water coloured with distress inks with added stickles and some copic spica glitter pen on Tilda's dress. I did a bit of faux stitching and then mounted the image on lemon glitter card, rounded off the corners and used one of the Nestabilities frames elements to decorate the four sides. The background paper is by Magnolia, distressed on the edges and to finish off I added some punched butterflies with pearls.

I'm entering my card into
Cute Card Thursday Dimension, well I hope I'm in time?

Thank you for visiting and as always for your lovely comments.
