I came up with this design with my youngest daughter Ashley in mind, who just moved back to Tucson to start her 3rd year of college. I can't believe how fast they grow up! SNIF!
I'm really pleased with how this card came out and I wish my photography did it justice. I colored Tilda with Distress Inks to try and give her a more vintage look. I pretty much inked everything except the buttons. The flowers were handmade by die cutting white cardstock and using embossing folders to give each layer some texture. I then inked each layer, cut, shaped and assembled.
The little bird and the doily behind Tilda were inked and covered with Tim Holtz's Holographic embossing powder. Hopefully you can see that I also used some on the tips of the flowers. More of what I used is listed at the bottom of this post.
Here is the inspiration photo for the Totally Tilda DT call. Wish me luck!
