Can I just say I love Magnolia Stamps and this little Sitting Tilda just captured my heart! I stamped her onto Watercolor Paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored her with Ranger Distress Ink, then I cut her out and used dimensionals to mount her onto the beaded oval. I shaded around her with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, as well as the edges of the oval. I made the flowers using Spellbinders Dahlia dies (the two smallest dies) . I used Distress Ink to color the flowers and snipped between the petals, then I hand embossed the petals and sprayed with Glimmer Mist (Pearl) and while the petals were still damp I used tweezers and twisted the edges to curl the petals. The swirls are Tim Holtz Alterations, Elegant Flourishes and the side panel is a Flourishes Stamp using the Weathered Wood Distress Ink that matches my flowers. Tilda is sitting on a Beaded Oval Die Cut from Spellbinders also. In the top right hand corner I took a 4" doily and shaded Weathered Wood Distress ink and then folded and added stamen for more texture and to match the stamen used around my flowers.
I'm entering this in Joan's Gardens Challenge #18 which calls for:
Die cut Flower
Some kind of alterations to card stock
A swirl...either pearls, paper or stamped
I think I covered all the bases on this one. This little number is labor intensive, but I love how it turned out. I think all the little extras just add to the card. I hope you enjoy!
Now go enjoy your weekend.....Do all the things you love...and remember to Breathe!
