New Tilda

My first day back at work today, I have been really busy but it is really nice being back to normal again. Although for some reason I do feel really tired and don't want to do much when I get home.

My wedding is 6 weeks on Saturday and I wanted to make "Thank You" cards for my Bridesmaids. I wanted the new Fairytale Magnolia images because I think they are perfect for what I want them for. One of the dresses that Tilda wears even looks a little like my bridesmaid dresses. I bought a few at the weekend when I was out with my Mum. I started to colour my images last night with the hope of making two of my 6 cards tonight, but I came home from work and had another card order so I decided to use my new fairy dust Tilda ( I think this is what she is called, but I am not 100% sure).


I gave her red hair like my Sister and decided to use my Basic Grey Origins pad that I have nearly used up. I don't usually like green, but I decided to try using different colours for a change.

I have distressed the paper with Tim's distresser and I have added black lace which you can't see very well because I have covered most of it up! I didn't want this to happen, but I then didn't want to cut away at my paper and lose the flower pattern. I added little black flowers that I punched from my tiny retro punch and I added stickles to give the look of fairy dust. I have also added some pearls on wire. Excuse the wet stickles and glue on the pictures, but if I didn't take a picture straight away I wouldn't done it at all!

Hope you like it! I will get back onto my Bridesmaid cards tomorrow night! Can wait to get them started.
