A spring walk


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. A card today for two challenges, The Pink Elephant with a theme of spring time and Wild Orchid Crafts where it's anything goes. I've stamped and coloured Tilda with tulips and the little scene is freehand watercoloured and I hope springlike :). Mini Tilda with bouquet is wandering off into the distance, I think she has enough flowers :D

I used Go Kreate dies for the card shape and all the layers, the patterned paper is Webster's Pages 'Hollywood' and I dyed the seam binding with distress ink/mica powder mixture and also Ranger Perfect Pearls mist. 

Thank you for your lovely comments and enjoy your weekend.

Wow Chris - You are a true artist! I am seriously going to be wanting to make something like this now too! hehee I just love how you added miss mini to capture the depth. And it looks like you may have used a light brown ink to stamp them to reduce the harsh lines? I think it just looks fabulous. Hugs hun xxooo
