Diggin it Tilda

Hi peeps,
guess what it rained yesterday, did it hear me say how gorgeous it was being because Jim's off lol,
Jim and Si went fishing last night so it was play time for me, I made this card for the TOMIC challenge which want stitching,
which as you know is something I do a lot anyway lol,

I've coloured Tilda with distress re-inkers and the background behind her too,
while Jim's been off we went to a craft shop and they had this gorgeous stamp set which included the grasses
so I blended distress ink from the DI pads on watercolour paper in two colours then using a stronger colour stamped the grasses on top,

The butterfly at the top left was done using two colours of DI then I've sewn three strands from the bottom of it to make a tail as the butterfly had trailing ends on the wings,

To finish it off tiny opaque gems have been added,
A hint of stickles and a small blue pearl finishes off diggin Tilda lol,
to keep in with the stitching theme the button has sewing thread through too,

Challenges
TOMIC ~ Stitching

off today putting some curtains up for Kay, don't think she should do it as she's 37 weeks today, so not long to go now lol,
will catch up with you later, have a lovely day,
have fun!
love and hugs Liz xx
