Cherries Galore with Sweet Tilda

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all having a lovely day today, It's not nice here in Scotland, been raining all day, it was supposed to be another sunny day today but as per usual the forecasters have got it wrong!!!

I wanted to show you my latest Tilda Creation. This time i've used sweet Tilda with her gift basket full of cherries.  I coloured her with promarkers and water colour pencils.  My papers are from Prima Annalee and Basic Grey Lemonade. I used a zig glue pen and added Glamour Dust around the outside of the card. 

 Flowers are a mixture I had in my stash, primas, bo bunny. sllk wild rose. The little flat rosebud  just to the left of the dragonfly I made using vintage seam binding, which I dyed using TH Victorian Velvet distress ink and water. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

The little dragonfly has been coated in glossy accents and tiny diamate added to it.  The metal cherry charm has been coloured with promarkers. Sentiments are both from Lili of the Valley.

The template you see at the bottom is my tip for Top Tip Tuesday.  Instead of buying expensive pearl or diamante swirls make your own, it will save you a fortune.  I used my piercing tool on card and created 4 different swirls all you need do is place it on your card and with a pencil follow the dots, add your pearls with stickly glue and hey presto you have beautiful swirls wherever you want them.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I do hope you are having a lovely Easter break and that the sun is shining for you even though it's not shining for me.
