Inky Chicks - Challenge #2

Hello there!!
I'm super excited today..
I've been asked to make something as a Guest Designer for the Inky Chicks..
And of course I said.. YES!!!

Here's my card for today's challenge..
The theme is Happy Birthday Girl..


I posted a little sneak peek of this card on my Facebook Page yesterday..
Since I love masking I tried to make something more complicated this time..
I've masked three stamps:
Sitting Tilda With Butterfly from the Magnolia Once Upon a Time Collection 2013..
Tilda's Heart Flowers - Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012..
Log - Halloween & Autumn Collection 2008..


These amazing DP's are from Maja Design - Vintage Spring Basics..
I've also used some kraft paper and Papermania textured papers..


There are lots of different flowers on this card..
The bigger ones are from Prima Marketing.. The rest is from Wild Orchid Crafts..
The image's cut out with Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles..


The border on the left was made using a Magnolia Doohickey - Edwin Lace..
The Photo Corner is from QuicKutz..
The pearls are from KaiserCraft..


All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
The lace is from my stash..
I just had to use a doily and some cheesecloth again..


The postmark stamp is from Kort & Godt..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
Here's the list of colours used for this one:
Vintage Photo
Tattered Rose
Walnut Stain
Antique Linen
Wild Honey
Scattered Straw
Victorian Velvet
Pumice Stone
Weathered Wood
Peeled Paint
Forest Moss
Black Soot
Milled Lavender
Dusty Concord


The dots around the image are made with Liquid Pearls..
I used Stickles to cover the butterfly's wings and the bow in her hair and Crackle Paint for the flowers..


There's a tag hidden saying Happy Birthday..
That's a Doohickey too.. I think that's the Bloomy Tag..



I made this card using a fantastic sketch from and old MDUC challenge.. 
I think it's Lori's sketch.. I love it!!


The sponsor for this fantastic Inky Chicks challenge is Cult Pens..


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
1. MDUC Challenge #192 - Masking and I'm also applying to be a DT member there.. It will be tough.. I've seen some amazing artists on the list..
Well.. Wish me luck!!!

Hey!
I haven't posted anything for a while but today it's time for a new Tilda's Town Challenge..
This week's theme is Flowers Everywhere!!


This is Tilda With Corkscrews from the latest Magnolia Collection - Once Upon A Time..
Not really satisfied with how she looks but it will do.. I have to learn how to make those creases look more real.. Shoud I attend some kind of colouring class or do you have any tips for me?


I've used my GoKreate dies for the card's shape.. 
There's a gorgeous doily under there and some cheesecloth under the image too.. 
I love layers.. Lots of layers.. 


You can see that there are several Doohickey's on this card too..
I've used Spellbinders Ovals and Scalloped Ovals to cut out the image..


The papers are from Maja Design - Vintage Spring Collection and Pion Design - Alma's Sewing Room (The Butterfly is from a Pion sheet too - I've added some Stickles and Glossy Accents on it)..
The Filigree Corner is a La-La Land die..


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts..
The pearls are the Magnolia Knick Kackery's..
Both laces and the pearls string are from my stash - bougt at a local store..


I've used some Stempelglede stamps for the details around the image and two new Magnolia stamps from the Butterfly Kit.. You can't actually see the butterfly because it's on the tag and I forgot to take a picture of that.. 
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
The dots around her are made with Liquid Pearls..


That's all from me folks..
Hope you'll be joining us!!!
