Spellcaster Tilda

Great name for this new Miss Tilda. She has certainly cast her spell on me! She is from the new Pirates and Fairytales collection. They should be available to pre-order from lots of places soon. I got mine from Magnolialicious. Diana was so great and got some in for us super dooper early...and they all went like a flash as you can probably imagine!!

Anywho...I have made this card for a few challenges this week. 3 I think is the count. Probably more out there but I didnt write them down. Silly me!

First challenge off the ranks is one for MAgnolia Down Under who wanted real or fake stitching! I actually dragged out the real sewing machine. i know!! Wowsers hey!! i dont know who got the biggest or the sewing machine...and once all the dust was removed...cough sewed like a dream!

Second challenge is for Simon SAys stamp. whose challenge is to distress! Easy peasy I love distressing!! i have used my trusty scissors to scrapped the cardstock and also have used my fav pinecone ink to ink distress as well. o how I love thee Mr Pinecone!!

Third Challenge was a sketch from Cute stamps and cards. My first time entering one of these challenges butthe sketch created by the lovely Claudia just screamed at me to use i did

And on with my creation.

I used very much the same papers as from my last card because they were still sitting out on my desk and i do love purple and green together.

And of course its and easel card because i just love them!! But OMG they are hard to take photos of! Here is my best shot. And my rosebuds werent quite dry and shifted...grrr!! But all fixed now

Ok Nitty Gritty
Papers are KAiser 'Garden arabesque', Basic Grey 'Wisteria", and Making memories range from yonks ago, think it was Olivia or Hannah or something like that.
Spellbinders petite scalloped large ovals , lattice borders and label 4.
Basic grey pearls, SU and CC designs sentiments.
Flowers and ribbon from my stash and leaves were cut on cricut using storybook cartridge.

Spellcaster Tilda was coloured using Copics for skin E11, E00 and E000
and pencils with OMS for the rest.
