Pretty Tilda in blue

Sorry for not being about much this week I have had so much going on with with family stuff and kids on half Summer Break 
but I managed today to get into my crafty place and play a bit
The image is a tilda I have had for a while and she was just crying out to be played with I coloured hwer with copics and used chalks for the background
The Dp is magnolia and I used a crimper on some of the Dp and added some Picket fence crackle paint to the edges.
The Flowers are all made out of DooHickey dies I added some spray and shine then sprinkles fine glitter on them they look fab in the flesh is just a shame pic does not do them justice I added a vine Doohicky die and magnolia leaf die and tag 
I also spray the small dragon fly dooHicky and added fine glitter to that to 
I useed a Martha Stewart Corner punch on the image then added some Vintage photo around the edge
The Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat
The lace and white gauze are from my stash

Well the Summer Holidays have finally started and the sun came out as well
My card today is from a Tutorial by Marianne On StampARTic 
I love this blog they have loads of fab Tutorials
its a Criss Cross Card with a Wrap

I will say this card took me most of today of this afternoon to make, not because it was difficult but there was a lot of matting and layering.
The DP is from the last release the ships and maps sheets they are gorg
I thought they would be fab for the image but to be honest once I cut them up Gulp! you cant really see it.
the leaf Punch is a Martha Stewart Punch
and a Martha Stewart Border Punch
The ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl
Flowers Mulberry Crafts
the heart gems from my stash
I inked all the edges with walnut Stain distress inks
The Sentiment is from CC Designs Stamps

I picked this image to go with the ships and map paper but not to sure now as it looks to pretty and you cant see the ships lol but hey I am sure some pirate loveing girl will love it.
the wrap helps the card to stay shut. The bit where the image is lifts up so you can leave a message.

Distress Marker Tilda

Hi Magnolia fans today I made a card with one of the new Magnolia images I got in my kit loved the stamps I got

I coloured this image with Distress Markers it is very soft looking I am quite happy how the colouring turned out as I am pretty new to colouring with my markers 
I defendantly believe the quality of paper makes a difference.
The papers are from the new magnolia papers but you cant really see them cause of all my embellies sorry lol but is the one with all the mushrooms on lush. 
Die is Doo Hickey and Cherry Lynne lacy Hearts
The flowers are from Mulberrys Crafts 
the lace from Cuddly Buddly 
The pins I made myself (Must make some more running out of colours lol)
The flowers have glamour dust on them but you cant get the good effect of the glitter from the pic 
I used a Martha Stewart punch Butterfly and glittered that to.
I attached some shabby ribbon to the hearts with some cream fine rikrak
and to finish some liquid pearls.
