Tilda Does a Challenge!

Hello again,

Cor, sometimes I don't have chance to Blog once a week let alone three times in one day!!

Following on from the Tilda cards I made earlier, I have made a card for the Magnolia Weekly Challenge, which this week is "Black and White".

For this card, I stamped the image in black StaZon and then used the trusty waterbrush (see a theme developing here ;O)) to paint in the black Adirondack ink. I used varying amount of water on the brush tip to get different shades of black so the image didn't look too blocky with the colour.

I then mounted this onto silver satin card and then onto black cardstock. I picked some of those lush papers from the Glitter Stack by DCWV and matted these onto black card and then placed them onto a white card.

I then picked some Prima "Got Flowers" and added little brads into the centre of them, layering them up to get more depth.

I added a couple of photo turns to the card, fastened with black swirly brads which are by Queen & Co. I then inked up a Hero Arts message stamp using black StaZon and matted this onto silver and then black card.

Finally, to go with the friends theme, I stamped that cute ickle kitty and painted him with the Adirondack black ink and then cut him out and popped him onto 3D foam and sat him next to Tilda.

I am not too happy with the photo's of this card as the black looks a bit washed out and it just doesn't pick up the lovely glitter on the paper...I think I need lessons in photography :O))

Thanks for looking!
