Tilda with an Armful of Flowers..

Hello there!

You will not believe it.. I am finally showing you a new project on here..
How long has it been?
Too long if you ask me..

I will be honest.. I was supposed to post this on Sunday for the Anything Goes theme on the Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog but unfortunately I did not have the time to finish it..
Anyway.. I made it.. Finally!
A project I've been wanting to get done for so long..
So here we go..

A gorgeous Scrapiniec Shadow Box that I decorated with all sorts of things from my shop of course..
When I was making it I was thinking that this kind of project would make an amazing decoration in a kid's room..
It is meant to be hung on a wall.. Now I just need to put a hanger on the back..

You might have seen on my Facebook page that I started colouring this gorgeous image a while ago..
Now it's finally finished..
I coloured this Tilda with an Armful of Flowers from the SeaSide collection 2016 with my beloved Distress Inks..
The highlights on the image are made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen and the sparkly details with Stickles..
The dots around her are just Chunky White Frantage..

The stamped roses??
An absolute favourite of mine!
These are the Altenew Vintage Roses..
It was love at first sight and when I discovered how simple it was to use these I couldn't stop..
I used just 1 Distress Inks to make these and I did some simple and second and third generation stamping to achieve this unbelievably realistic effect..
If you would like to see a tutorial about this just let me know..

The die I used to cut out the image is a Spellbinders frame from the Floral Assortment set..
I tried to embellish as many surfaces as I could and I did use my sewing machine to do the stitches all around the paper pieces..
I also used a paper doily to give some more interest..

The papers are all from Pion Design..
One sheet from the Vintage Garden collection and two from the Paris Flea Market collection that is just to die for..

There are many many details on here..
I used a GoKreate behind the image..
Then some Magnolia Doohickeys like the gorgeous Tilda Tag and Chicken Wire..
I stamped the tags and fence from the Cozy Fox and Fence Stamp & Cutz set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the Magnolia Postcard set and the New York Set and an old Kort & Godt stamp I have..
The kraft paper is from Bazzil..
I put a bit of foam adhesive behind the fence to make it pop out more..

Then there is a little frame I made and the butterflies..
And all those marvelous WOC flowers all around with some cheesecloth under..
Some half-pearls to make it more sophisticated..
And the fabulous White Resin Roses..

The lace.. Our wonderful Lace Fleur..
An a cute little bronze charm called Romantic Key..

I did apply some Dina Wakley Gesso here and there and some half-pearls on the outside too..
I also gessoed some parts of the chipboard frame and left the rest just as is..

Then there's the back of the box..
Since it will be hanging somewhere I decided to make just a simple pocket when you can tuck in a nice message for the recipient..
The border I used is also a Magnolia die.. This one is pretty old but still one of my all time favourites..
It's called Old Swedish Lace..
Cute, isn't it?

Here's one last shot of my project folks..
Hope this post wasn't too long for your liking and you got to the end of it..
Can't wait to make something else!
I'm finally back!!!

Hugs, Tina

Holy Tilda With Violin..

Hi guys!
I'm done with my Christmas makes for this year..
I finished this card earlier today and it was a last minute.. Well.. More like a last second make..

 The papers are from Maja Design..
I used the Vintage Summer Basics 6x6 paper pad and the Vintage Spring Basics 6x6 paper pad..
The card's base was made using a GoKreate die.. 

Oh my.. I'm such an ass..
I only noticed this while editing the pics..
There was something bothering me and I couldn't figure out what that was..
Now I know..
I forgot to remove a piece of paper from the end of one of her braids.. I did the masking when the image was already coloured and I cannot believe that I didn't notice that before..

Well.. Too late to take new pics..
It's already on it's way to a new home..

Here's a pic I took while colouring so you can see that I really did color the whole thing..

This is Holy Tilda with Violin from the Nativity Collection 2012..
I looove her!

She's coloured with Distress Inks..
I use the regular ink pads and the reinkers..

Let's talk a bit about the details..
The feathers are a gorgeous Magnolia Doohickey die..
The flowers are from Kort&Godt and WOC..
And so are the berries..

All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
And I've used a bit of Gesso here and there to give it more of a shabby look..

A paper doily is a must..
And so is some wonderful Lace Véronique and the White Vintage Seam Binding..

Another fantastic Magnolia die here..
The Bloomy Tag..

And more flowers with a bit of cheesecloth under them..

 The background stamp is from the Magnolia Vintage Box Vol.1..
So many pretty things in it..
I will be definitely ordering them all..

Some pearls are 'real'.. Some made with Liquid Pearls..
And the sparkle on her.. Star Dust Stickles of course..

That's all for today..

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it..
I know I'm a bit rusty but one of my New Year's resolutions is to be 10000%  more creative next year..

Merry Christmas everyone!

Hugs, Tina
