Tilda returns

I really didn't get Tilda when she first became so popular but after a while I had to try and now I am a real convert. I've only got a few Tilda stamps but every few weeks I can't resist getting them out and having a play. I just loved the colours on this weeks challenge from the One Stop Craft Challenge - Apple Green, Chocolate and Clotted Cream and thought they would be perfect for a little Tilda card. I'm also entering it in this weeks challenge from Flutter by Wednesday which is an open challenge but as always including either butterflies, angels or fairies.

I've used a butterfly backing paper from Artylicious Butterfly Bliss cd which I've distressed with some walnut ink and then added some dots of Cosmic shimmer Twinkles in Autumn to highlight the butterflies (they look black on the pic but this glitter glue is a gorgeous colour, one of my favourites). I've also punched some flowers using the same paper and a Woodware Dahlia punch and added more Autumn twinkles and a little gem in the centre. Tilda is coloured with promarkers and sat on a frame made using a Joanna Sheen stamp embossed in Palm Green EP onto brown pearlised card, the background is a scrap of cuttlebugged card coloured with pastel green chalk. Finished off with some brown textured ribbon from Elusive images.

Thanks for looking
