My Tilda With Curls card




I think that this Tilda stamp is my current favourite, although I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of the Tilda stamp club.  It's the first time that I've bought the TSC so I am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be some lovely stamps in there - I know that it has Christmas Tilda's in it.  I'm sure that I won't be disappointed.

I have had this image coloured for about a month now but my crafting MOJO has definitely been AWOL these past few weeks - must do something about that!  The challenge this week at the Secret Crafter is "Distressing" so I just couldn't resist making a card for their challenge.

I have distressed the edges of the papers with my scissors and inked around to add to the distressed look.  I bought the Prima flowers from the Secret Crafter and I love their "aged" look too.



Here's what I've used:

Stamp - Tilda with Curls, Magnolia, coloured with Pro Markers
Paper - Persimmon paper pad by Papermania
Flowers - Prima
Sentiment stamp - Hot off the Press
Roses amd pearls from £1 shop



I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Distressing
Crafty Cardmakers -Step Away from the Square
Gingerloft - Glitter or Bling (glitter on the wings, roses and sentiment
If the Shoe fits - Distressing
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch

Thanks for looking,

Amanda
