Tilda Stamped and Revamped!
This Tilda card has been shelved for a week now. You know how you go through your closet with the changing seasons and literally have nothing to wear? That was what my Tilda needed...she had been originally cast in a lacy number with those round white doilies and this big 'ol flower and just seemed dwarfed!! I had put her on the shelf wondering who I could send her to when I received some of this pretty crochet lace in the mail! So, as habit with me, I ripped Tilda off the doily and decided to try a diminutive ruffle with pearls to give her a bit more presence...and paired her with this background damask...and now I think she is ready to mail!! Sometimes our wardrobes and accessories just need a bit of revamping...mine needs a complete overhaul!
My card today is for the Just Magnolia Challenge to use lace on your card. This ruffle is so easy to do with a strip of scor-tape. I am glad I tried it out! The pearls have those Stampin' Up glue dots underneath to keep them anchored. I used my paper piercing tool (also Stampin' Up) to place them. It is sharp and dangerous, but really handy when it comes to placing small objects!
So I am off to Macy's today because Tilda is looking better than me! Thanks for your visit, have a blessed day!
