Distressed Tilda

Hi to all in blog land, It’s been one of those day’s today you know the one were you set out to do something and if it can go wrong it does,lol I’m entering this into three challenges,

Simon Says~ Shabby chic,

Charisma Cards~ Anything New,

Quixotic Paperie~ great Sketch,

I started out with good intentions of it being so easy to do, well that’s what I thought any way, first I masked the flower and Tilda wasn’t on the flower right, then I decided to do the flower in grey ink, big mistake you couldn’t see the lines when I coloured it, not to be deterred I drew over the lines with a black liner, seems to have worked ok, I hope it looks ok !!P1010684

Items Used,

Magnolia Images ~ new

Copics, Glamour Dust, Memento Ink, Distress Inks,

BG~Wisteria Pad,

Textured Card,

Swirl stamp freebie~ Craft Mag,


I’ve put Glamour dust on the edge of the petals and also tiny bits floating down, hard to see I know, my practising hasn’t made any difference lol, oh well off now to make tea, thanks for looking,

                                 Hugs Liz xx
