Dotty Tilda


Just love Valentine Tilda, thank goodness she can be used year round!  I so admire Chris Dark's coloring, she has such a unique style and I just love it!  So this is my attempt at the background.  Got some learning to do, but fun to try!

Used Distress Inks:  Dusty Concord, Weathered Wood, Tattered Rose, Faded Jeans.  Already forgot what browns, either Brushed Corduroy or Frayed Burlap or both!!!  Punches are Stampin' Up! scallop trim border and a new butterfly border I found from EK Success in the American Girl category.  Also used the white Glaze pen for accenting.

To find Magnolia stamps, click here to go to Diana's at Magnolia-licious has the best customer service and a fantastic selection.  If she is out of a particular one, she is always getting new shipments.  Ha, like being out of one stops anyone from finding another to get!!!

Want to thank all of you wonderful people that have stopped by my blog and encouraged me with such fantastic comments and signed up as followers.  Can't believe I am creeping up on 10,000 hits, so going to do something for blog candy as appreciation.  Really enjoy coloring with the distress inks because they blend and flow so nicely.  Since I've received personal e-mails with questions about them, for the blog candy I'll have the distress ink palette that I've made up and use plus some other goodies.  So please check back within the next week or so!

Enjoy the day!!!

Ooh la la! Great job on your background. I love the dots on her dress. Your colouring looks fantastic. I love the layout with the butteflies and then the design down the side.
