Country Bumpkin Tilda

Hello all of you sweet lovely bloggers, how are you all today? Any of those whoare feelin poorly or cacky or even just fed up I send you all big squooshy hugs to help make you feel better mmwah.
Well guess what I'm here with a card..........check me out 2 posts 2 days running I just may be back to my normal self.................yeah yeah ok so I was never normal but its my Vickyness, I tell ya its deep within.......screamin, crying.......desperate to get out!!! ;0)

Anyhoos me lovelies I have made a card with an image I'm not entirely happy with but my confidence in colouring hit an all time low so I found this in my coloured up box. It was coloured prob about a year ago with prisma pencils................

I have used an older maggie stamp, Tilda Wearing Floral Head Wreath.......
I went for the country-ish look.......I think thats what I thought when colouring her............maybe lol.

Ingredients will be at the bottom my sweeties....
Added Stardust Stickles to the flowers which are from WOC & to Tilda's flowery headband.

Paper used is Prima 'Nature Garden' & had the edges inked with Walnut Ink & matted onto kraft card, I also machine stitched all around each layer..............yeah get me lol.
Enchanted lace was added along bottom & I also used a Cream Pearl Pen to added dots of pearls around the image, these really are fabulous items to have in your stash.
The dies I have used are Macarena Corner & Elegant Scroll both from Memory Box.
All of these items are from & available at My Crafty Heart.

Sentiment stamp & postage die are both Whimsy.
A4 card & Muslim are from my stash.

Well thats it from me my lovelies, thank you sooooooo much for stopping by your comments & visits really mean the world to me. Will be round to see you all later, I'm still playing catch up so bear with me peeps lol.

Toodles mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxx

Christina C. said...

Vicky, this card is PRICELESS!!! lOVE seeing the older Tildas...unfortunately, they come out with new collections so fast, there is never enough time for the older ones and, thus, they get neglected. Soooo sad!!! You did an outstanding job coloring and showcasing this little darling!
