Anyway! Back in July, I entered my Little Mermaid Tilda card into the My Partner In Crafting Crime challenge and won. They invited me to be featured in a guest spot today and I'm very excited about it. I was asked to make a card with a 'Vintage' theme about it. They have some absolutely gorgeous creations going on over there so I hope you'll take a moment and grab a looksie.
Here's the card that I made. It stars #215 Farewell Tilda from Magnolia's Bon Voyage collection. I hope you like it!
As I mentioned, I used #215 Farewell Tilda and #713 Farewell (sentiment) on this card. She is from Magnolia's Bon Voyage collection, which I absolutely LOVE!!! Diana stocks the entire collection over at Magnolia-licious, but this one sold so fast that she is currently on re-order. Isn't she just adorable??? The background flowers are an image from Tim Holtz's 'Spring Flowers' stamp set.
The dp's I chose are from Graphic 45 and cs is both Bazzill and Stampin' Up! If you haven't checked out the Graphic 45 papers before, then it's certainly time to do so. They now produce 8x8 paper packs in their gorgeous vintage collections and they are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! The prints are smaller so they're perfect for card making. I spent a lot of time in their booth at CHA just studying their creations. Anyway, back to my card...The gorgeous peach flower and the lace are from Magnolia. The pearls, ribbon, ticket and corner piece are from my stash. I applied star dust Stickles to all of the lace on the image as well as to the flower petals.
I colored the image with both Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger Distress Inks. The details are as follows:
Copics - E00, 02, 42, 43, 50, RV21, R11, 20, W00, 1
DI's - black soot, walnut stain, forest moss, antique linen, tattered rose, tumbled glass, weathered wood
That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit! Did you check out the countdown to Sweden at the top of the page? I'm leaving in just over a month!!! OMGoodness! I can't wait!!!
