Tilda With Daisy
The little Tilda image on my card above is one of my attempts. No, you don't see any folds. I've covered them up! I am doing my practice on my good X-Press It Blending card, so rather than wasting my cardstock, ink and time, I've paper pieced over the clothing. I have a number of these "altered" images in my stash now, so I thought it was about time to use some of them.
Well after literally spending over an hour trying to find a sketch, and then spending an equal amount of time trying to find paper that would work, not only with the image, but with the sketch, too, I finally got this little card made up (shew!)
My base card is white with a layer of green card on top (cut about 1/8" smaller than the base card). On top of the green, I have layered a piece of orange card. I cut a 1 1/2" strip of patterned paper and matted it with the green. I cut out my image using a Spellbinder die (Labels 8) and matted that with the green. Across the DP, I have added a strip of lace and green ribbon. My sentiment was cut out and matted onto the green (cut with Spellbinders Beaded Circles die). I then added some roses from WOC, and finished it off with little green gems.
The construction was quick and easy once I got the concept, the paper, the embellies and the image to all gel up (grin). Enjoy!
