Beautiful Tilda

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and had a good weekend. A card today using Beautiful Tilda and very aptly named I think because she is and probably my new favourite :D! She's coloured with distress inks, some cobalt blue water colour paint and I've painted a flower scene around her. The card is a gatefold style made from kraft card and die cut using a GoKreate die. The patterned paper is by Magnolia and I die cut the butterfly twice using the gorgeous new DooHickey butterfly, it's a very pretty lacey cut design, the wings and body are separate dies which is great as you can cut the body and the wings in different colours or patterns. I've added lots of pearls using pearl pens and lots of stardust stickles of course :). 

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge where this week the theme is 'So Krafty' and kraft card has to be used. I'm also entering Paperplay Challenges with a theme of 'show us your style' and distress ink colouring and techniques are my favourites so I think this card fits that. Paper Sundaes has a theme of magical and mythical so I think the card fits that too.

Apologies for not returning comments but we've been away on holiday, hope to catch up soon. Enjoy your evening :)
