Tilda with Balloon and Some Sweeties

Apologies for being MIA again but I have been quite unwell and in hospital again but here is a card I have made using some of my new goodies I have been buying recently. This is Tilda with Balloon from the new Magnolia Sweetness Collection and I have coloured her with Copics, she has been cut out and mounted to base with DST. The base is layers of paper from the Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue Collection (one of my faves!) I have also die cut a strip of the paper using a MFT Die-Namics Faux Chrochet Border exclusively available in the UK at Die to Die for (the new to be released dies are now on pre-order too). I have stamped the Elzybells greeting and popped behind on of the layers. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (the large one coloured with a Copic to get the colour I wanted) and The Hobby House pearls added to finish.

STAMPS: Magnolia, Elzybells. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Kaisercraft. TOOLS: My Favourite Things Die-Namics Faux Crichet Border, Copic Markers. EMBELLISHMENTS: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, The Hobby House pearls.

As a thank you for dropping by today I have a little candy for you. A pack of 6x6 Core'Dinations Whitewash card, two packs of Magnolia flowers, Tilda with Balloon stamp, purple buttons and two crochet flowers. All you have to do is add your name to Mister Linky and I'll randomly pick a winner on Wednesday 16th Feb ... good luck!

The winner is Jane at MilliesMarvels
