I have coloured up 'Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda' using a combination of DI markers and Re-inkers. All the dies are by Noor design, the snowflakes peeping out at the top have been cut twice and I've added some frantage. The ribbon, lace and pearls are from the Ribbon Girl

New Challenge at LHOSM - Tilda with Flowing Hair

Hi everyone,

I'm just popping back in with a card for our new challenge at LHOSM and this time we would like to see you creations with some Pearls or Gems.

This time I have coloured Tilda with Flowing Hair, she is quite an oldie now, but I think she is so pretty that she deserved to come out of my stamp box. The papers are by Maja and I've edged them with Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste. It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but I used some Star Dust Stickles for the socks to make them nice and glittery. All the lovely dies are from Noor Design UK and hopefully you can make out the oodles of pearl string.The beautiful lace, pearl flatbacks and cheesecloth are from the Ribbon Girl. The ribbon, and flowers are from my stash.


DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Shoes: Pumice Stone

Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are the Ribbon Girl.
