Cute Tilda Card

I think this Tilda stamp has to be one of my favorites I use her all the time.

After watching Nikky Hall from Polka Doodles demo a sepia tone picture using ProMarkers it gave me the inspiration to try it myself.

I cut and folded a 6 inch white card blank.  Took a smaller piece of white card and used the Polka Dots That Special Touch mask to make the back ground using Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I then cut and measured three panels, used Craft Concepts Cottage Floral embossing folder and again coloured with Walnut Stain Distress Ink going over it a couple of times to make it slightly darker and matted onto white card.

I stamped and coloured the Tilda stamp (sorry I can't remember what colours I used, will try and remember to make a note for the future) and cut her out using oval Nesties and distressed around the edges using the same ink as before and matted it on to a white scalloped oval again cut from Nesties.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the White Pearls around the edge and corners were created from the Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer specialist pearl PVA.

The white organza ribbon is out of my stash.

  1. Lol I did exactly the same after watching Nikky Hall. Over on my blog I used a Tilda to do a sepia card. This is beautiful. Fab colouring. Zo x
