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.
