Tilda with Rose Scent

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

How are you all ?  ...I have been enjoying some crafty time !!
 I just loved colouring Tilda with rose scent with my distress ink pads and pens . I have also stamped some Magnolia Chocolate text stamps around her with black ink and then white embossing powder over the top.

I have used the beautiful sketch for the
MDUC facebook #1 Challenge  such a great sketch to play with !!

I used spellbindres dies to cut these gorgeous papers from pion and matted them with foam tape onto Papermill linen card for the base. 

I also inked the edges with black soot distress ink. The stunning lace and pins are from Live & Love Crafts. The fan was made with a Tim Holtz rosette die and the sentiment is from Magnolia. This is more of a CAS card for me lol as I do tend to overload !!

I used Magnolia Rose packages for the inside and also there is a surprise Doohickey jolly tag !!

I hope you like my creation and are having a great week !!

There are lots of inspiration over on the blog and all the details !!

I have chosen Sakura New Year Tilda she is so cute I love her winking !!.. a wonderful Christmas gift from my super bloggy friend !!... I have coloured her with distress inks & markers and used some stardust stickles and liquid pearls to decorate.

I have made a little box with insert !! I was looking back at the cards I made in the past and thought I would try this again ;0)

I have used pion design papers and matted them onto the box which is made from Papermill ivory linen card.
I have added lots of doohickey dies including peony,vintage daisies, envelope edge and lovely fence. I have finished the flower centers with hobbyhouse brads and added pearls to the sentiment also cut out from the design papers. The tulle is from Maya road I just adore this stuff !

Here is Colleen's super sketch looking forward to seeing your creations 

I have used Maja Design papers cut from the funtopia digital cartridge from cricut and matted them onto Papermill Card . I have painted the edges with snowtex...just love getting all messy lol .

The fun stamp is from Lili Of The Valley and is called Christmas cupboard. I have used distress ink markers & pads much detail and great fun to colour !!.

I have used a doily behind the la la land poinsettia die cut with some beaded stamens for the center.

I have added some lace and used the mini banner die lights from Whiff Of Joy around the edges with some Kaisercraft stickers for the letters. I finished off with some coats thread and tiny brass bells .

The edge on the corner was where I had made a mistake and the cricut had cut the top part only of the shape so I painted it and added pearls to the top how it turned out !!
