Sitting Tilda

The card I am sharing with you all today uses a 'Bon Voyage' Tilda & I have her sat on a birthday card full of layers - most of which are distressed in some way. There is a LOT of texture on this one - from the Forever Friends embossing folder, paper-piercing, torn edges & distressed edges, not to mention that even the white card layer behind the pink cut-work layer is textured too. This might not show too well in the photo but it peeks through the cut-work nicely in RL. Tilda herself has been coloured using Promarkers & a couple of Tria pens but I have added a hint of colour to my card-stock with pink chalk (not used those chalks in ages!) as well as a pale blue ink pad.

Yes, this another of my cards brimming with cut-files created using my Silhouette Cameo and a number of the resulting layers are also given that touch of dimension courtesy of glue gel. I created all the cut-files other than the pink floral background immediately behind Tilda & this is a cut-down version of a design from 'Designs on Cloud 9'. The circular sentiment in the middle of my doily-like floral circles is from Sentiments4You.

I kept the inside of my card a lot less complex but still used some of my matching cut-files here too.

Hope you like it - & thanks for visiting my blog!
