Heya! I'm really tired today. Weekend can't come fast enough this week. Just need to get through this week and the next one and then I'm home for one week. Can't wait, I could really use a break. my sweetie told me that if the weather is ok (meaning not too much snow) he will take me to some short trips around the country (he didn't want to tell me where - he said it's a surprise). Isn't he a sweetie? I love him sooooo much!
Today I have a Tilda card to share with you. I haven't inked this cutie for a while so I thought I'd do it now. :) And to try something new, I decided to try and colour her with TH distress inks (since I don't have reinkers, I just used ink pads) - I used brushed corduroy and antique linen. Hmmmm ... I am not sure what to think. I know it's far from perfect, but I'm not giving up on coloring with distress yet, I'll definitely try coloring with those again.
Anyways, here's the card I made ...
I didn't use any design papers on my card, I just used white cardstock over which I stamped with different stamps - I used Faded text background stamp from Stampabilities, Sheet music and Postmark stamps from Kaisercraft and several different stamps from Recollections. Around Tilda I stamped with Hero arts star stamp. On those stars and on Tilda's wings I used glitter glue to add some bling to the card. I used a gorgeous white French rose ribbon and lace from Crafty ribbons. In the center of each rose I added gold confetti - I've had those in my stash for what seems like forever. I creater a flower banner (sort of) using my flower punch, some more of those gold confetty and some pearls from my stash. On the side I also used a couple of strings of pearls. The swirls were made with TH die.
