DYSU GDT - Paris Tilda in the country

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week! Today I have a card to show as this week's Guest Designer on Do You Stack Up challenge blog where the challenge theme is grass. Thank you very much for inviting me ladies, it's been a real pleasure to join you in the challenge this week and I hope that there'll be lots of entries for this lovely theme. I've painted a little grassy scene for Paris Tilda to stand in.......I think she wanted a break from the city :). 

I've painted Tilda and the scene with distress inks, Tilda was painted separately and cut out and the background was painted then die cut using a GoKreate die. I've also used the Magnolia 'loving wishes' sentiment which I've cut apart. I added pearl pen dots, stickles and gel pen to decorate and it was nice to make a non Christmas card although I reallllly need to be making Christmas cards :D!

Enjoy your day!

Jaw droppingly beautiful Chris. I'm beginning to run out of superlatives to describe your work, it just gets better and better.
Sorry I haven't been commenting as much but you are still not showing in my reader when you post, not sure why as I'm still following.
Hope all's well. x

Hola, Chris, he venido para saber ysi estabas de vacaciones, porque tus entradas no entran en mi blog en el recuadro que tengo en mi lista, ya me resultaba mucho tiempo y veo que has hecho nada menos que tres, creo, no sé que pasa.
Bueno como siempre tus trabajos me apasioonan, pero esta ultima tarjeta conTilda, me he quedado sin habla, el coloreado es de lo mejor que he visto, el vestido los zapatos, el prado, es un cuadro en miniatura, enhorabuena, preciosa, preciosa.
