Tilda with Daisy

I think it is safe to say, I haven't quite got doilies out of my system yet! LOL.  Not a new Tilda, I know, but she is an adorable image just the same isn't she? I coloured her with Promarkers and layered her up with more cut-files than I would like to count - not to mention a couple of coordinating papers. The flowers and 3 different types of leaves were also coloured using Promarkers - hard to tell on the daisies I know once I had finished bending them into shape, but each petal does in fact have markings on it too and their centres were also given colour using Promarkers to tone in with the papers (hence the orange & red colours too, not just the yellow). The sentiment on the front was from Sentiments4You.

Lots of layers & lots of dimension.

As I had chosen to lay the fancy borders so they would protrude down the sides of the card's front and onto the reverse, they were decorative on that side too. This meant I needed just a shorter version along the top edge of the inside of the card to maintain the decorative edging. I have probably not explained this very well .... LOL. Repeating the same two design papers on the inside, I kept it all relatively simple using a sentiment from Artistic Whispers and a 'frame' to write in later, embellished a couple of golden 'gems', like the ones on dotted onto the card's front.

  5. super sweet card. I love daisies, they remind me of my next door neighbor growing up who had them growing everywhere in her garden. I remember picking them and giving them to my neighbor when I was a little girl, just like your Tilda image!
