Tilda with flower pot for Cute Card Thursday and Stamptacular Sunday



Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week and if you're in the UK enjoying the gorgeous weather? A card today using the beautiful Flower Pot Tilda, definitely my favourite at the moment :) and this card was sent to my sweet friend Kim for her Birthday :), so now I can add it to my blog and scrape in on the challenge at Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is 'weather inspired' and I think Tilda is enjoying a spring walk in the countryside! The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday is 'use your favourite Magnolia stamp' so I'm entering that too. 

I've also used the spring fence stamp and masked the two together. all the painting is done with distress inks and I've added some handmade fabric flowers, paper roses and embossed the card layers under the image with a Crafts Too butterfly embossing folder. 

Enjoy your evening and thank you as always for your lovely comments.

STUNNING card, Chris! I love when you "paint" a background...like true watercoloring! The colors are beautiful, Tilda is perfect for this challenge, and I love how you blended the colors on Tilda's outfit! You just never cease to amaze me with your coloring skills and creativity. Love how you masked the two fences together!
Hugs, Cami
