Shabby Chic Tilda


Hi All,  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I had a lovely day with my dear crafting friends yesterday at our monthly crop,  lot's of laughs and frivolity, although not a lot of crafting on my part.  

I wanted to show you a sweet tag that I made. I started out with a piece of corrugated card and dabbed it all over with some white acrylic pain, then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz old paper ink.   Stitched some K&Co paper to card and added this over the lovely lace at the edge.  I knew my images were going to be sweet Tilda and my Magnolia sentiment stamp which were coloured with Pro&Flex Markers.  I will put a full recipe of my ingredients below this post for you.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  Would like to see Shabby Chic this month

Going Buggy Challenge:  Would like to see Lace & Butterfly's this month.

Lets Ink it Up Challenge:  This time its Lace or Ribbon

Anything Goes Challenge:  Have a Bingo recipe this week and I've chosen Distress/Gems/Ribbon&Lace.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge:  Would like to see  some Lace this time

Simon Says Stamps Challenge:  Would like to see a Tag on it's own or somewhere on your creation this week.

Southern Girls Challenge:  Would like to see some distressing this week.

Just Magnolia Challenge:  Would like you to include or make a Tag this week

Crafter's Saturday Challenge:  Have a game of Bingo this week, I've chosen Gems, Swirls, Ribbons. 

Before I go I want to say Welcome to my new followers, it's so nice to see you here and I hope I can enthuse you a little, thank you everyone who takes the time to leave me a comment you will never know how much they mean to me.

Hugs
