Sparkley Tilda

Hello peeps hope you are all having a good weekend. We've had an adventful 1 to say the least but I shall not bore you with the details so instead I'm just gonna get on with my card lol. After the weekend I've had I couldn't get into a crafty mood last night.....my mojo had kinda said 'Toodles' 'see ya later'. So instead I eventually stamped a Tilda onto my water-colour paper & coloured her. Today some of my mojo made an appearance & said 'hi'........
Say hello to 'Ballerina Tilda'. She was stamped onto 'The Langton' watercolour paper & coloured with distress inks. I think there was a small explosion from a glitter bottle in my craft room & a lot of it went over Tilda & the card lol. Over at 'Totally Tilda' their challenge is 'Glitter & Sparkle'....she is certainly sparkling!!! I've kept meaning to enter their challenges but either run out of time or forget about it....well this 1 I am entering. As I painted Tilda last night I had to pick paper to match Tilda instead of the other way round, I actually do that a lot lol. The paper is K&Co & its from the 'Big Stack', its had its edges inked with 'Antique Linen' distress ink & distressed with my stressy tool.

 
Doily has been inked with 'Tumbled Glass' distress ink. All gems are Prima & the flowers I punched out with my Paper Shaper punches & then covered in 'Waterfall' stickles & white 1s are covered in 'Diamond' stickles & added a Prima gem to the middle.

The strip through the middle I punched using 1 of my MS punches, I cut small slits in each side of the doily & slid the card through & then added a punched flower. The swirls are made using my Cuttlebug.

The sentiment is from Magnolia & Tilda has been edged with 'Diamond' stickles.
Inks I've used to colour Tilda are.....
Skin...Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick & Vintage Photo.
Hair....Walnut Stain
Dress & Shoes....Tumbled Glass.
Well thats it from me I'm running a tad late on my tutorial just because of weekend disasters but I will be putting it on in the next day or 2.
I hope you like my card I would love to hear what you think whether its good or bad. Thankyou for stopping by & thankyou for your wonderful comments they really do make me smile, I appreciate every single 1.

Bye-D-Bye for now
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
