Tilda in Evening Gown - Deep Ocean Challenge

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. I'm looking forward to Easter and a few days off work to recharge the batteries.

Today we have a new theme over at Deep Ocean Challenge and this time it's 

Favourite Colour Combos

Well, this was very hard for me, because although I do have a yen towards purple tones, I don't really have a favourite colour combo, and when it comes to crafting I really love to change it up as much as possible because it gets boring colouring with the same tones or to match the same papers all the time.
So in the end I thought hey...I'll stay neutral, and plumped for neutral grey/white/black shades.

So now I have a confession.....I bought this Tilda when she was first released.....over a year ago! and I have only just coloured her up. How shameful is that? Worse than that, she isn't the only un-inked stamp in my stash ....sigh...

Oh well at least she's seeing the light of day now lol

So this is Tilda in Evening Gown, and I've given her a bit of a glamorous treatment, I think she deserves it after that long wait don't you? 

I used some older Maja Papers, these are from the Crea Diem collection. I edged all my layers with Walnut Stain distress ink. The 'clock' is cut with the Dewdrop Circle die from LDRS Creative, and I used a stamp from Kaisercraft to stamp the clock with grey ink.I used the same stamp on the edges of my framed image.

She's coloured with distress ink markers. I added lashings of Wink of Stella to her dress and the surrounding sparkles and you can actually see it (kind of) for once in the pic above, though it still doesn't show how shimmery it looks. I thought this was the perfect sentiment for her.

To finish I added some lovely embellishments from the Ribbon Girl and a few from my stash.

From the Ribbon Girl
