Tilda in Lace Pants for Totally Tilda

Good Morning and happy Sunday!  If you're in the UK I hope you're enjoying your bank holiday weekend too, though I hope you're having better weather than me, torrential rain and freezing cold yesterday, I had to resort to putting the heat on and there's only one week till June! Still, at least I did manage to get some crafting done.

I'm here today with my DT post for the new challenge over at Totally Tilda, and this time we want to see Black. White and one other Colour.  You can of course use normal skin tones as well, so really a pretty easy one this week.

I've had this gorgeous paper in my stash for a while just waiting for this challenge as I thought it was perfect. One of the pages from the pack has a lovely lace pattern, so I thought I'd colour up Tilda in Lace Pants from the newest Magnolia collection and paper piece her 'Pants', it always makes me giggle a little when I see trousers called pants, cos here in the UK pants are underwear, so lace pants to me would be something pretty from Aubade lol.

The paper pad I used  is Elegant from Authentique and I used quite an ornate die Palace Oval Frame from Memory Box to mount her on. All layers have been distress with Black Soot DI and hand stitched with top stitch thread.

I coloured her up with my copics, I'm sorry I don't have the exact colours noted, but they would have been the Ws and the BGs and my go to skin colours which you can find on any of my posts with Copic colouring.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  The bow is made from satin ribbon also from The Ribbon Girl and the beautiful cameo is from The Handcrafted Card Company. The gems were clear, I coloured them to match the paper/image with my Copics, I love that you can do this.

Isn't this butterfly gorgeous?  They're handmade by a lady called Kay Fatula and come all the way from the US.  You can find them in her Etsy shop here, she's lovely, do drop by her Facebook page too and give that a like if you're on FB.

Finally I decorated the inside to complement the front (or and for those people who told me I spelled complement incorrectly and it should be compliment,  compliment is when you express admiration or praise, complement is when something enhances or improves the overall effect. If you're interested in grammar....and yes I can be a grammar nazi can check it out in the Oxford Dictionaries blog here. I love language it can be so interesting....but also so confusing he he)
I'm entering the following challenges:

Magnolia Mania - #91 Paper Piecing
Addicted to Stamps #83 Bingo (lace, metal (the cameo setting), flowers

This card is for sale in my Etsy shop .

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday (and bank holiday weekend if you're in the UK) I'll be back on Monday with my post for La-La Land Crafts and in the meantime go check out the rest of the team's creations, here they're flippin' gorgeous!

Bye for now! : ) x x

  3. Oh what a beautiful card and I love the colour you have chosen for your 'one other'. It complements he,he, so well with the black and white. The Memory Box frame die is now going on my extensive wishlist which, since I have been following your blog has gotten increasingly longer and longer. You must stop using such beautiful things that I NEED, lol.
    Hope you enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday Weekend and that a bit of sunshine comes your way.
