Tida Takes Centre Stage




Wanted to show you the embossing under the paper curtains


Hello my Dears,  I hope I find you all well and happy.  The snow has just about gone now oh but it's bitterly cold today.  I'm so glad that I don't have to go out.  I've made this card today for quite a few challenges.  I've used one of my favourite Tilda's from the Christmas collection this year.  I love her to bits.  I started the card off by embossing a plain white square card and then cut out the curtain shapes from Karrs special collection paper and glued them on to give the effect of a stage.  I then used pink glitter board to make the little platform at the bottom.

Sneaky Tilda has been coloured with Pro Markers and then stickles added to her little frills, mounted her on an oval nestie and added lace all around the edge. The little heart is vellum and I stamped my sentiment onto it and added liquid pearls around it. You can find the rest of my recipe for the card at the bottom of this post. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and week.  I will see you all a little later when I do my visiting.  Thank you for popping in to see me.
