Hi sweet ladies!
First just wanted to remind you that Nicole is still auctioning different items for the Dutch Animal Welfare Association (de Dierenbescherming dus :) ). You can find the auction blog HERE and my wallet to hold stamped images (the post below this one) is still on there (even though the highest bid very nice I must say :) ).
But that isn't the reason I'm posting today... I have another card!! And this one is with no other then Tilda by Magnolia. I have a couple of Magnolia stamps but am ashamed to say I never use them... my style never seems to really work with Magnolia but every now and again there is an image is "must" have so I buy it anyway but then when it comes to choosing a stamp for a new project they are never picked. But I did buy three of the images of the new Christmas line and I told myself I could only buy them if I would actually stamp them... so here goes :S:I am actually pretty satisfied with this card (so there might be hope for me and Tilda yet ;) ). The stamp I used is just called Angel Tilda and I think she is just lovely. The roses are from stash, the crystal chandeliers and the background paper are by Magnolia as well and the Holiday Ticket is by Whimsy stamps. The embossing was done with a Cuttlebug folder and I used different Brilliance inks to distress everything a bit. Here is a close up of Tilda:
Colored with Copics, I've forgotten to write down the numbers again... sorry :S. When I'm coloring I'm just in such a happy state that I forget and put every marker back after using it. She was again 3D paperpieced. Here is a view of the inside of the card:
The big swirl was done with a Magnolia die, embossed with some Liquid Applique and glittered with some stickles. The little pearls were done with a Perlen Pen but I'm not crazy about those things. The paper is by Basic Grey and I stamped around it with a very old set of background stamps, I'm afraid I have no idea what the brand is. The sentiment is by Elzybells and unfortunately is no longer for sale.
Well that's it. Please let me know what you think about this card. Does my style work with Tilda?
Have a great day everybody!!
