Tilda in the garden


Hi everyone! A card today with Tilda in the garden from the 'So Special' collection and I've water coloured her with distress inks, painted in a garden around her and added sparkle with some stickles glitter glue and a gold pearl pen. I cut out part of the pattern from a piece of Prima Annalee paper which I added top left and also cut some fabric with the Doo  Hickey lace die, coloured it with shimmer mist and attached over the background piece of embossed hearts and shimmer misted white card. Lots of pearl pens around the edges to finish off.

I'm entering my card into Totally Tilda Challenge where the theme this time is 'how does your garden grow'.

I hope you're having a good weekend :D

Beautiful Tilda, Chris! Love how you've painted her to look like a "painting" in an art gallery as compared to something I stamp w/black ink and color! lol I love it!
The ribbons are so pretty like this... I would love to watch you paint!
