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.
Hugs Marion

Oh, how gorgeous, Marion! I love the way you did your corners on the basket. And your Flowers are gorgeous. I bought those same flower punches and ended trading them for some Nestabilbies. My flowers never looks as beautiful as yours. Your coloring is fabulous, and Tilda is adorable perched on the side of the basket...

Marion, your basket is fab. I must give it a try. I love how you colour Tilda and I would have said that you already have the hang of those distress inks.
I was waiting for someone to show me what they can do with those Nelli Snellon punches I've heard about. Your flowers are gorgeous--so professionally made. I might just have to invest in those punches.
Terrific job on the project.
