Tilda with Wand


I love playing about with layers, punches and dies, and its great to have a sketch that inspires you to create dimension without relying on flowers :) (though I love them too!).  I saw this sketch on the FuzzyWuzzy challenge blog, and thought it was brilliant, though I cant enter this card, as the theme is animals. :) (note to self Alison, check the theme!) ;) lol.

I used Tilda with Wand (one of my favourite stamps), and hand-stitched the papers and beads.  I used spellbinders dies and an MS punch.  I have quite taken to die-cutting my image, but keeping bits outside the frame -  its easy once you get the hang of it. :)  Bling and charm from stash.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Just Magnolia - Fave Colour Combo - I love aquas/blues and whites, they look so clean.
Lets Ink It Up - Dies and punches
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Monochrome - shades of one colour - blue
The Shabby Tea Room - Bingo - Gems/glitter/ribbon
A Spoonful of Sugar - Ribbon, pearls/gems and floral DP
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Monochrome
Crafty Creations - In Stitches
Moving Along with the Times - Precious metal
Do You Stack Up - Shine on
Thanks so much for looking, have a great day, and good luck to everyone in these challenges,

Hi Alison, the layout on your card is impressive. I love the stitching. I really appreciate how you visit my blog. You live in my dream vacation spot. Someday I would love to go to Scotland. I have dreamed of that place ever since the Bay City Rollers!! You're probably to young to know who they are.

Anyway, I love your cards and style.
