Starts With a Piece of Paper


Sometimes it just starts with a piece of paper!!!  I loved the soft color of this Bazzill paper and got a new corner die, so just had to try it out.  Also wanted to color this adorable new Tilda!  I just don't know how they can keep getting cuter!!!  Was trying to keep it simple and not add flowers, but I just couldn't do it!  Had to add at least a few!

Click on the item to go directly to it at the store:
#3034 TILDA WITH BUTTERFLY JEANS
#22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES DIES
#9 DRAGONFLIES

Diana the very kind lady at Magnolia-licious is offering yet another way of giving back!  Check out the details at the Magnolia-licious Blog about the In Store Credit for all of your purchases at the store.

I'll fess up on the corner die!  I grabbed a piece of scrap paper just to test it out and then found out the piece didn't come completely out of the paper.  Thought I got a bad one till I figured out it is supposed to be like that!!!  Always a learning lesson!!!
 
Tilda is water colored with Distress Inks, mainly tumbled glass, tattered rose and vintage photo.  Also used a Nellie Snellen corner die, Spellbinders lacy circle die, JustRite word and border stamp along with some rhinestones, pearls, and ribbon for added jazz!  Tilda is water colored with Distress Inks, mainly tumbled glass, tattered rose and vintage photo.
 Tilda is 3D'd with one to three layers.  I tried taking photos of the side without showing you the lovely foam tape I use for the, layering!!!
Don't forget there is still time to enter the Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest.  All the info is right HERE at Magnolia-licious Highlites.   Diana has come up with some great categories and talk about some generous prizes...WOW!!!  You certainly don't want to miss out on this opportunity!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my speck in the blog world!  Always appreciate the time taken for those that get a chance to leave comments!  "You Make Me Smile" and it makes my day for sure!!!

Enjoy every day!

Tilda is adorable and you are right... seems to be getting cuter. Love the soft and gentle hues. The flowers and dragonfly finish off the card so well.

Hi Patti Jo!
This is gorgeous. I love the colors you used on this one. So soft. the design is fab and I see you used the new die cut corners. I had to see if it was the same as mine as it looks different put closer together. I think it will become a favorite for me. Love the small touch of red on her butterfly.
Hugs Maz

Wowzer, Patti Jo, oooooohhhh I love it. I just put in an order for this adorable Tilda..woo-hoo. Beautiful colouring as always--I love the soft effect of the DI--have also put in an order for some of those after look at all the fab creations using this medium. Fabulous the way you've layered Tilda to give her a more 3-D look. Ooh, I wish I could see this in real life--must look even more fantastic. I am eyeing that Nellie Snellen corner and am having a debate with myself...LOL. Ka-ching!!
Hugs,
Norma
