I have made the most of the yukky weather and stayed indoors and crafted this morning!! It has taken me longer than usual though cos my back is really sore today and I cannot move too well :O((
I have another Tilda card to show you = this one is using the final stamp of the three that I bought the other day.
For this one, I decided to go distressed and once I had stamped her and the cat, I used Distress Re-Inkers, with a dab of ink dropped onto an acrylic block and my good old waterbrush to colour them in.
Once the colouring in was done, I then roughed up the edges using a paper distresser and then set to colouring and distressing some cardstock. I used Old Paper, Fired Brick and Walnut Stain Distress Inks blended with Cut & Dry foam. I flicked water onto the card and then dried it off with a heatgun.
Next I used some fabby stamps from The Queen's Dresser Drawers and PaperBag Studios to make backgrounds on the card.
I then decided that they looked a little bit flat, so I matted them all onto some gold card and then decided that Tilda looked a bit bare, so I stamped her and the cat onto copy paper and cut them out. I then masked the images I had painted and blended Old Paper and Fired Brick ink over the top so I had a more coloured background.
All that needed to be done was to use my new fave stamp, which says, Gossip, Who Me? and is by The Queen's Dresser Drawers too. I stamped this onto the background card and then once onto the image mat and then stuck them all to an A5 card.
Another strange Tilda is born!! Please tell me what you honestly think to these cards!! Thanks Hels x
