Piping Tilda's Apron

I decided on a shaped card for my 'Piping Tilda' image & so have her popping out of one of the pockets of an apron, cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  That particular pocket is actually paper-pieced so that it fits around the piping bag shaping perfectly. The two pockets, plaid aprons (there is one on the inside too) & all the kraft shapes have inked edges. The checked dps also have 'stitching' added using a fine Promarker nib before being layered up to include lacy ''broderie anglaise'  borders (the one towards the bottom is a double layer of 2 designs), again cut using my Cameo. Tilda herself was coloured using my Promarkers but I kept the image on the front of the tag (which goes into the larger pocket) without any colour so it didn't detract from the main image. That image of a row of cakes is from Beyond the Fringe & on the reverse of the tag is a simple 'birthday wishes' sentiment.

I love making flowers but can never make up what my favourite style & design is. These ones were given Promarker-ed petals & pearly centres before being set on a heart-shape - again this shape was given an inked  & 'stitched' edge.

The inside of the card echoes the apron design & 'lace-work' and features a circular sentiment from Bird's Cards.
