Longing Tilda




Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week so far. Here's longing Tilda.....longing for froggy to turn into a prince no doubt :D and I've given her a castle tower to long from also using the castle window stamp. Everything is water coloured with distress inks, stickled and I've added glass glitter and stickles to the turret scallops and glossy accents and some glass glitter on the frog prince. The flag at the top of the tower is attached to a pin with a large head that's been glittered and stuck through the scallops at the back (these were cut on the cricut as was the blank that I've used to get the tower shape). Hope you're enjoying your Spring stamp kit if you got them too.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're very much appreciated.

I'm entering the Just Magnolia challenge this week as it's anything goes.

Gabi said...

Hallo, Chris!
I´m from Austria/ Europa and I´m sorry, my English - lessons in school are long long ago!
But today I must tell you that this card is a sensation!!!
I´m visiting your blog (I don´t remember how I´ve found it) since a year or so and I´m fascinated about your work! I´ve learned a lot from you, especially with the coloration and how you make the shadows and the background.
You are very talented and I´m looking forward to your next posts.
Greetings
Gabi
