green tilda

It's been a long time since Tilda surfaced, so she's looking a bit green  . . .
~ Ü ~

For these challenges:

Tilda has been coloured with coloured pencils, in a stroke style. Something a wee bit different from  the norm. Ok, I tried distress inks, but the paper (despite its description of fine quality suitable for inks & watercolour) did not take colours well and just bled all over the place! She sits on corrugated board which was previously used as friction buffer. It has been painted lightly in cream, then edged in DI & stickles.
 The background is made up of printed kraft wrapping paper and quarter cut large doily, both inked in forest moss DI.

A brighter pic of the bow topped with a button from an old garment, and burlap twine. The strip of ribbon has been stitched with a leaf stitch using the sewing machine. The flowers are cut from Japanese print paper and inked with peeled paint, forest moss & walnut stain DIs.

Thanks for stopping by!

supplies: stamp (magnolia), postcard (theHouseAcrosstheBay), dies (spellbinders), pearl & paper pen (viva decor), ink (versafine),
distress ink & stickles (ranger)
