Pink Tilda

go to my sidebar to see my candy giveaway
I just finished making this card with hawaian tilda from the latest magnolia butterfly dreams collection

I used the sketch from just magnolia for my layout

 I made this flower using tissue paper and the large brad in the middle I made using the i-top tool..the brad is covered with paper from the magnolia paper range..which matches the background paper.

The challenge at totally tilda is to use paper piecing..so I have paper pieced her dress and the little flower on her head.
The posies are from kaiser craft..i only just brought these and they are simply lovely, I hadnt seen them before. I added some liquid pearls to the dry embossed flowers..

butterfly dreams easel box card

 The background paper I made using the butterfly stamps from the butterfly dreams collection. I stamped the small butterfly in black tuxedo ink and then using my distress inks i used a sponge to distress the paper. distress inks used : walnut stain and wild honey
 I layered this gorgeous large butterfly stamp from magonlia by stamping the image three times, coloured them with my copics and then cut the images out but each time i cut it out i made the wings shorter.
 I coloured the large flower embellishment using the copic air gun
 tissue paper flower coloured with copics
 I thought you could use this card to put in a birthday present or even easter eggs...
This is my first go at making an easel box card and im pretty happy with how it turned out....took me awhile but well worth it in the end.  I hope you all like it I'd love to read your comments ;-)

 I was so excited to see them at paperific along with many other FANTASTIC creations.
As it was the release of the creeper kit from the greeting farm all the cards I made were using these new stamps. I hope you like them... I just adore these new creepers!!
