PINK TILDA ICE/BALLET PRINCESS

Good Morning to all my Crafting Friends

Here in the usually sunny South Africa, more precisely Pretoria, we are experiencing a few days of over cast weather and after the very hot days that we had, it is so nice to have the cooler weather.  I must admit, I love Spring and Summer, but I love weather like this even more.  It is ideal crafting weather, not to hot and not to cold and should there be rain falling down, that is even better.

Now for my card.  I will enter this card into the Magnolia-licious Challange.  This is the first time that I have coloured the image and then cut it out with a Spellbinder die with a piece of the image that is "hanging out".  I was a bit unsure of how to do this, but I am very happy with the result.

The scalloped "silver" circle is made from a piece of "material" like paper that is used in the Air Conditioning industry.  This is something that I received from a gent that is working with me and he knows that I love things like that - he knew that somewhere, sometime I will have use of it.  I just loved the way it worked out.

My Card with  Pink Tilda ice / ballet princess.  I have not coloured her in pink (as her name suggests), but I love the red and blue colour combination. 


This is a close up of Tilda.


The dragon fly is a peel-off, I coulered it with a red marker, then I used Blue and Red gems on the body and little pearls on the wings.



I hope that you will all have a wonderful day and many, many inspiring ideas.  I must apologize for the shadows in my photos, they do not look as good as usual, but I forgot to take the photos at home and I really wanted to post this post this morning and here at work the lighting is not so very good.

Hugs,
Marika

  3. Marika, what a lovely card. Seeing this particular Tilda bring back memories. This was the very first Tilda I every saw and she made me want to find out more about her. Now of course, I'm a Tilda addict..LOL. Love the scalloped circle.
