Cherry Tilda


Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well. A magnolia card today which was one that didn't go into the Midsummer Magnolia Ink magazine so thought I'd post it today. I've used the lovely Cherry Tilda from the 2008 travel and school collection and the Fence and Summer Background from the 2008 summer and sea collection. I've water coloured with distress inks and Tilda and the background are cut out then attached to the card with gel glue. The scalloped background is an SVG file cut on the cricut and to finish off I added some stickles, butterflies punched from watercolour paper and then water coloured and some linen thread bows. 

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Chris,

I've got to come up with new ways to describe how fabulous your work is. Your cards are always so stunningly gorgeous and I always feel like I repeating myself. The rich colors of the image against the plain white card just pops. Love it :-)

This is such a gorgeous card... love the Tilda stamp she is so cute and coloured in beautifully. Thanks for leaving a lovely comment about my 3D flower vase card. So sorry about posting your digi image, I never gave it a thought, I have edited my post now by removing the picture and it now gives a direct link back to your shop. Sorry again.
