black tilda

I felt like playing with Tilda today, so I took out my brush and inks, then I took out colour pencils. Nothing worked out right, the colours just seem garish or messy. So what the heck, I will NOT colour Tilda. I will just stamp and emboss!

This is what I came up with, and I have to say I'm quite happy with it. I embossed the image in silver, then layered it over a floating frame. The frame is chipboard wrapped in foil. I was toying with the idea of playing in Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Metal. The foil idea came as I was preparing roast chicken for dinner!

I did not have any silver buttons, so I heat-embossed white buttons with silver powder to match.
