Life Is A Journey When You Dance With Tilda...............

Good morning everyone hope you are all fine & dandy this fine Monday Yeah right I hate Mondays, Monday should be part of the weekend I blinking fab would that be!!!
Anyway onto my ickle card. An idea popped into my head last night for making a card, I was actually in the middle of another project & ended up dumping it to finish another day & making this 1.....well I may of forgotten to know how it is dont you?? lol. I have diagrams & notes written all over the place with idea's etc & still never get around to doing them.....I will 1 day tho you will see lol.
Right I'm just gonna push on cus their are a few piccies to share for this 1. Over at PFP this week their theme is is my attempt at reclycling.....
I have also followed an old sketch from Papertake Weekly, its Sketch 40
This is Ballerina Tilda....I think she is soooo pretty. She is of course coloured with Promarkers & I went for the sepia look which is a first for me but I quite enjoyed it. All you need are 5 Promarkers/Copics depending what you use......the promarkers I used are; Almond, Putty, Tan, Cinnamon, Henna & its sooo quick to do. I have a few bits of recyling on this.....1 of them is on the bottom I will show you what it looked like before it fell into my hands....

Yes its a cd I brought these a few years ago to put some music on, they actually look like mini records but its hard to capture on photo......this 1 however has got scratched over the years & usually I will coasters out of them for the kids bedroom or something, they choose the design. Well i thought I could add it to my card lol. I also recycled some lace & some tulle from some old clothing 1 being a very pretty party skirt of my daughter's that was not too small, I have put the rest of it in my stash lol.

Here she is with her black lace & her white Tulle but I coloured it a little with a bit of distress ink, she also has 'Platinum' & 'Antique Linen' Rangers Stickles on her crown. The ribbon is from my stash & the pearl buttons are from The Hobbyhouse. The papers are a mix of DCWV 'La Creme Stack' & GCD 'Paris Nights' both are really beautiful & are available from Crafty Emma's Store The 1 with the eiffel tower on is the 'Paris Nights' one. As I was using french style paper I decided to make a French Sentiment. So I created my tiles by printing out the letters in a biggish size then rubber over them with 'Brushed Cordroy' distress ink & then smothered with 'Crackled Accents' & left overnight to dry, hence why its this morning before I could post it on here lol. It says 'Dance' in french & I think they have turned out quite well & I really like them. Gems & pearls are from my stash.

A better look at the tiles...well a bit better lol.

This is the bottom of my easel card with the CD. Both of these papers are the 'paris nights' one. The large curly mulberry flowers are from Emma's, the cream one I added a bit of 'Brushed Cordroy' to it. The tag is one I printed off & the sentiment which I absolutely love is actually a digi from here. I inked the edge with the same distress ink that has been used throughout the card & smothered it in Crackle Accents.

This also I am really pleased with. The tag I inked with 'Brushed Cordroy' distress ink & all papers & card were inked with this & the papers were also distressed.
Well thats about it I think. I hope you have all had a nice enjoyable weekend. I will hopefully be back tonight with something else, hopefully lol. I'm off to get some cleaning done I've still got Natalie off school with a bad cough bless her so hopefully I will manage to get everything done.
Thank you for stopping by & for leaving your wonderful comments it really does mean a lot to me. See ya soonies.
Hugs To All Vicky xxx
