Skipping Tilda


Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend. A card today using one of the older Tilda's but I  think she's very sweet with her skipping rope. The image is coloured with distress inks and cut out with a Nestabilities labels die and layered onto a doily and then K&Co paper. I've also used the gorgeous Magnolia Doo Hickey lace die, flora doodle flowers, Viva pearl pen and stickles. The sentiment is from Magnolia and cut out with a Nestabilities tag die. The paper edges are distressed and torn then sponged with peeled paint distress ink and I've finished off the card with a pretty ribbon.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Just Magnolia Challenge which this week is 'Vintage'
Everybody Art Challenge 'blue and white' (well it's mainly blue and white :D)
Raise the bar 'Ripped, torn, distressed, broken'
Sir Stampalot Challenge 'Lazy days of summer'

See you tomorrow with my TSG Blog hop card and thanks as always for your comments which I always love to read.

Hi Chris, I love this little card ... Looks like you've been busy coloring ... wonderful job on her ...
How do you get your pictures to show up SO nice & large on here ??? Mine only come up 3x3 & I WANT them larger like yours. Any suggestions ? Maybe I need to change a setting somewhere.
Hugs, Janie
