Tulle Skirt Tilda

Hello everyone! Today I have another Maggie for you! I just got this stamp in the mail on Saturday and I had to find a way to get it colored...I'm out of my Neenah paper...uuugghhh! Anyway, I keep every scrap of that stuff that I don't use, and managed to find a piece big enough to stamp this darling little girl!



I based this card off of a sketch(shown below) from Stampin For The Weekend. They were also having a color challenge of Yellow and Blue...hence the colors.



I am not completely sold on this card, but if I stare at it any longer I'll probably end up really screwing the thing up and I put a lot into coloring it, so I don't want to do that.






Here's a close-up of Tilda. I've actually got a bunch of stickles on there, but they are not showing up very well. The little fence I have her sitting on is from the Spring Swiss Pixies set from C.C. Designs. I have attached Tilda with a hot glue gun... first making small beads so she sticks out a bit from the fence. I actually stamped that fence on DCWV cardstock from the Garden Party stack...it's got a blueish tint to it if you can't see. This was the first time I've done that and I'm a little surprised it worked.



Here's a close-up of the flowers...I've got stickels on them too~ The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the little swirly things were made from their stems...I wrapped them around a pencil to shape. I thought the swirlies looked ok as is, but then I thought they might look kind of pretty with some pearls. What do you think, the pearls ok?

Well, I think that about covers it for my card. The papers are all plain card stock...the white and yellow were embossed with my cuttlebug. Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
