Tilda Goes Hippy Chick!

Hello,

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

Oh boy, this is a fabulous hippy chick I must say. I love the colors that you used and the entire "feel" of the card. It almost makes you want to break out in a John Lennon song while waving a peace sign back and forth in the air, hahaha! I really like the design of the card as well; it's so balanced and the flowers add such a nice touch. Everything is soo coordinated, right down to her little shoes! Mahalo for sharing, Jenn
