Dancing Tilda

Hi all, I have been looking through the challenges this week and picked a few i wanted to join in with. I took a look at the just magnolia challenge and wasnt sure whether to join in. I am not normally very good at vintage theme, but after scouting through some of the amazing blogs i follow i thought i would have ago. I started this card yesterday and ended up very fustated, every time i tried to stamp Tilda it was going wrong. I hate wasting things, and ended up going through 2 pages of expensive water colouring paper, which annoyed me very much. I finally finished making my card today and thankfully today was a better day than yesterday. I stamped tilda with the latern first time(yipee). So i have a few photos for you. Im very pleased with this card.

Stamp-magnolia, mid summer Tilda and love lantern
DP-papermania, regency
Flowers-selection from wild orchid crafts
Ribbon and pearls from stash

The strip of brown coloured writing i made my self. I used stampin up En Francis stamp with memento cocoa ink stamped onto normal white card stock. I then distressed it using Tim Holtz distress ink in brushed corduroy. I also used Tim Holtz distress tool to add a bit of a rough edge. I added gloss accents to the glass on the lantern to give it a bit of shine, you can just see it in one of the pictures.

just magnolia-week 65 vintage
friday sketchers-sketch 112
stamp challenge-something flowery
raise the bar-distressed, torn, ripped, broken

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
