Sweet Tilda

At last I have finished another Tilda. My dear friend Patti Jo gave me this stamped image and I think it will be one I will be getting. I think she is adorable. I made this for another dear friend who is 93 today She is actually an artist so I hope she likes this card. I have coloured her with distress inks.
The flowers are simple ones that I have made and put some stickles on.

Distress ink colours.
hair:  walnut stain, antique linen and black soot
face:  tattered rose and cheeks worn lipstick
dress:  stormy sky and dusty concord
shoes: stormy sky.

You can click on the images if you need to see them bigger.

I'm a gal of few words so here it is.

Tilda's Easter Baket


I have been having fun making this great woven Easter basket from here
I made the flowers from the Nelli Snellon punches and the leaves from Martha Stewart punch. This Dinner Tilda was one of my first Tilda's from Magnolia stamps 
Tilda is coloured with distress inks. I must say I still haven't really got the hang of them yet but hey! I'm having fun learning. Tilda is sitting inside a Spellbinders frame.

No Easter eggs in there yet.

April Showers


Well it has been a long time since I have put a card on but finally have one. This one is called April showers. I have coloured this one with distress inks. I have been practicing but still need a lot more practice. The flowers I made are called Wattle. They are native to Australia.
Here in Australia on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland the rain hasn't stopped falling for days.
There are floods everywhere. Fortunately we live on the top of a high hill. The grass here is usually brown from the heat and dryness. It is nice to see the green grass like my home land of New Zealand.
