Aquarius Tilda



Pin It
Hi everyone,

I started this card last week but just didn't have the time to finish it until tonight. I am pleased with the results. She is stamped onto neenah cs and colored with copic markers. E00,000,11,31,35,51, B12,14,26, W1,3. The back ground of the image was masked and then I chalked with SU bashful blue chalk. I then took  a honey comb stencil to add a bit of a darker blue. It just looks like circles but I like it any way. I added some water flicks with my hand to set the chalk. The water jug was coloured with a sharpie blue metallic. It covered the flowers that were on the just so I added x markes over it in sukura white pen to bring in a design. Now at least I know to colour around the designs. I added some pearls and sequins around the image. And then layered it onto a piece of black cs from scrap pieces. I think it is recollections cs. I decided to add some lashes on Tilda and I love it. 

The card base is neenah cs and I used the cuttlebug swiss dots folder to emboss the front of the card. I ended up covering most of the embossing up. The DSP is from DCWV kids stack. I used a MS border punch on the DSP for more interest.   I cut 2 black corners pieces for the top left and the bottom right using quik kuts corner die. I added some blue ribbon from SU  and made a bow. I popped the image up with foam dimensional. 

The flowers are from my stash. They were white and I spray painted them with some alcohol mixed with a blue colour. I used a SU flower blossoms punch for the leaves. At the last minute I added the feathers. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things had written sentiments. The sentiment was Dreams can come true. I just wanted the dreams so I took some tape and covered the rest of the sentiment before inking the stamp. I then used a black sharpie to draw a black line around the image and then some faux stitching across the top and bottom of the card. I used wink of stella pen on the corners water and the jug. I also added it around the image frame. It does not show as much as I had hoped in the photo but it is beautiful in real life.

I hope you enjoy my card and find some inspiration from it. 

I will add this card into these challenges.
