Well, I guess it's technically Tuesday now...took me a little longer than I thought to finish this, but it's my 1st vintage card, so it needed a little extra care.
Here she is in all her glory! This is Romantic Tilda from the new wedding collection, and I just love her! The moment I saw this I knew I had to have it! No, I'm not like that with all of them, lol! Isn't she just darling though!
I'm not for sure about the embellies here, but I don't think it's too bad. I frayed the edges of the papers with my scissors, then inked them with a mixture of brown and green...after that, I stitched around them. I didn't have any matching thread, so I used white and chalked over it in a light olive green. This card also follows the sketch at Just Magnolia this week.
Here is a close-up of the adorable Miss Tilda! I had soooo much fun coloring her! I know she's a little monochromatic, but I really wanted to use that color for her dress, and I couldn't think of a color I'd like to go with it. It's not very often I use pink, so I'm allowed to indulge on occasion! Tilda's background and shadow have been made using chalks in a light and dark green. The chalks were set with hairspray.
In case you're interested, a close-up of the flowers. The centers of these flowers are roses from Wild Orchid and I've inked up the edges and sprayed them with glimmer mist. The bottom of the flowers are from here. That awesome little butterfly is something I got from my dear friend Loz...Thanks Loz, you're a sweetheart!
Let's see, I think I've covered most of it. The papers are K&Company, the pink velvet ribbon is from MME and the lace is from Hobby Lobby. Pearls are some cheapies also from Hobby Lobby. Well, that should do it. Hope you have enjoyed my card today. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful Day!
