Tears for Tilda

Over at the Magnolia Lovers Challenge this time the theme is Lace and at Magnolia Down under the theme is Lace and flowers.
Here on this card I used some lace that was given to me by my lovely friend Trisha from Canada I also used a lace doilie and to take the lace theme to the extreme I used 6 brass eyelets to make holes so I could lace the Prima DP up with twine after distressing all the edges and stapling them with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to give this card a really shabby looking edge
I also made a glass pearl/bead Dangle with a zip pull charm hanging , I finished off with some roses from Woc , leaves cut from SU DP with an MS punch , Gems from MAMBI and a large BG button threaded with SU twine and a Tim Holtz Addage ticket.
This beautiful Tilda is of course coloured with Copic markers
I hope you will pop over to the new Steel Magnolias blog run by "4 Girls with one Addition!!" if you love paper crafting & Magnolia stamps please come and follow us to watch our new blog grow daily
Have a fantastic day

Totally Tilda ~ making Flowers

Hi just wanted to let you know you still have about a week to enter the current Totally Tilda Challenge #5 our theme this time is "Make your own flowers", to enter just pop over to the Totally Tilda Challenge you have until noon GMT Friday.
Please go and have look at the amazing creations my very talented Design Team have made, their handmade flowers are amazing , Here's another one I made in hope to inspire you to come and join in the fun..............All I did was die cut some flowers with Sir Tim's Sizzix alterations flower die (3 lrg, 2 med, 2 small all the same shape), I used the pages of a big book I got in the pound shop, I bought it for the purpose of cutting not reading!!, then I put some "spun sugar" colour Tim Holtz distress ink on my messy mat and sprayed it with some pearl Glimmer mist then I soaked the flowers both sides and scrunched them up and while they were scrunched up I semi dried them with the heat gun then opened them out a bit (but not flat) then I took the 2 small flowers and glued them together staggered, and glued the big pearl in the middle letting the petals of the top flower hug the pearl, then I glued all the other flowers behind one by one staggering each one and left the glue (and the damp petals) to dry over night.
When I got up the next morning it was as you see it now crispy and quite hard, I then used some 3D crystal clear liquid stuff and blobbed it on the petals here and there and dipped the whole flower in Glamour dust.
It sounds a long process but really it was quick and easy, next time I'm gonna make a batch in different colours starting with the lights mixing the inks as I go , I expect I'll end up with a poo brown colour at the end of it all !!! lol Have a great weekend
