Halo Tilda


 Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend. I have a card to show today with the sweet Halo Tilda from the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas dreams collection, she's so cute! I've coloured her with distress inks, added lots stardust stickles and mounted her on a nestabilities die cut postage stamp card base. I made the background paper using mica mists and crumpled the paper while it was still stamp to get crinkly effect. The lovely sentiment is also from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection and I've added little metallic studs and stickled star to embellish. 

It's the start of a new challenge on TOMIC today, my card was intended to be on the blog but I failed miserably in remembering my bingo line, so I couldn't add it :D! I hope you'll pop over to the blog for some gorgeous inspiration and to join us if you can.

I'm entering my card at the Corrisive Challenge blog where the theme this week is 'flying things'.

Enjoy your day!

She's gorgeous Chris - love the soft colours and lovely textures. I just cannot get it together with Distress ink colouring. Do you use blender pens or paint brushes???? Jo x

¡Como me gustaría colorear los sellos algo parecido a los tuyos!, es que aunque ya te lo he dicho otras veces, solo el sello coloreado por ti no necesita ninguna otra decoración, me encanta y admiro mucho tu trabajo.
Besitos, vuelvo a decirte que estoy muy agradecida de tus comentarios.
Besitos.

Wow!! My very favourite Christmas stamp. She is such a cute angel.
I really love how you have coloured her. I love the darker shading. I have tried to do hair like that but have failed more times than I would like to admit. I love the background Spellbinder shape and the metallic studs.
I pray your Mum is doing well.

Oh my Chris, this card is just SO GORGEOUS! It is so eye-catching with the pink and blues you have used, and your DI coloring is always something to be admired. I love the textured, crumpled paper behind Tilda, all the sparkle, and the metallic studs you've used. This shape card (postage) is very pretty.
Hugs, Cami
