Sending Love

Hello Everyone!  I am entering the Totally Tilda DT call.  Yikes!  Am I too green for that?  I know I would LOVE the challenge of it and would do my very best.  As you can see from my posts, Magnolia stamps are my favorites and it would be a dream come true to be able to work with them on a design team such as Susie's.

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!

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog, the flowers are made using the George cartridge. I have a tutorial on my blog and I will go and put a link to it in my sidebar if you want to see it. They are really quick and easy to make.
