Midsummer Tilda

This may be my favorite one yet of the new stamps. This card turned a little shabby chic and I'm loving it.

The paper is from the Basic Gray line Lemonade and I really think I need to get some more of it. I inked everything up with my cat eye inks and distressing inks. Of course stickles on the headband and a little on her pinafore. She's colored with copic markers and I promise when I get more I will list the colors I use but for now I mix so much because I'm just starting out it wouldn't do anyone much good. The pink strip was punched with a Martha Stewart punch along both sides.


The flower is cut from Forever Young and my cricut with a pearl glued to the center. I tied a charm from the piece of ribbon and called her done.
I hope you like her as much as I do. I'm entering her in the following challenges

Magnolia Down Under - charms by April 30

You have achieved what is difficult for me...combining patterns, colors and embellishments without overwhelming the focal point!!! Distressing the edges w/ink causes Tilda to be 'front and center'!!! Yes, your paper choice is perfect...will need to check out that line! TFS
