You know I said the other day that I was getting a little fond of Tilda? Well, I have just got a few more stamps LOL :O)) Oh dear, I can see this is becoming an obsession....I won't buy any more though, honest, I won't...well, not this month anyway!! :O))
Today I made a card using one of the new stamps.
I used Adirondack Inkpads in Currant, Stonewashed, Denim, Espresso and Butterscotch and a waterbrush to colour her in and added a little bit of make-up to her again!
I used those most divine and heavenly Fleuriste papers by Cosmo Cricket along with a few of the flowers from the diecut sheet that comes with the paper pack. I also used a paper distresser to make the edges shabby and then used a babywipe dabbed onto the inkpad and smudged about the edges. The little word mat was made using some StudioG alphabet stamps which are so cool, I have a few of the fonts now and they are so versatile as they are small enough to make words but not too small, if you know what I mean! I got the alpha's from The Fruit Pixie, which is such a lovely store to visit!
Oh, and I almost forgot to say, when I was making the flowers up, I used those lovely pearly brads from Dovecraft - and inadvertantly knocked my brad box, which is one of those plastic boxes with 24 sections in it, off the desk, and straight into.......the overflowing bin :O(( I admit I cussed a little bit and now I have the delightful task of going thru the bin and finding all my brads...I guess I have learnt two lessons from this; 1) Always clip the lid back down on the brad box and 2) empty my bin more often!!
Anyway, I would love your opinions on this card.....thanks for looking
