When we Love-we grow

I'm very excited to be presenting my first Tilda card to the world! Not the first card I actually made. You can see that one on Friday when I post my Christmas Card Challenge. I made this card just for me! A few weeks ago a couple of my dearest girlfriends came over to stamp! One of them (yes D! you know who you are) brought some sweet Tilda's, which stole my heart! She shared her stash and I knew I just had to have some of my own! Between us all, we have quite a collection!

If you are a follower of all things Tilda, you may find my card a little barren in terms of Embellishments! I tend to have a fairly clean style with my main concern and focus being the image. I am pretty disappointed as to how the orange ink on her dress photographed. In real life the lines are softer and the contrast gradual. I didn't seem to be able to capture this on film, nor with editing. But anyway, as I look at her on my desk, she's REALLY pretty! I love this new Bo Bunny Spring Paper, which was the inspiration for her dress.

I love this sentiment-when we love, we grow, which I hold to be true...... you can find the sentiment at STAMPOTIQUE Originals. Tilda is coloured in Copics. I used a lot of stickles......orange and eucalyptus to be exact to make things sparkly and shiny, which again are not captured in the photograph to the degree I would like. I rimmed the edge of the circle nestie with stickles. Additionally, I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch and some Big Yummy Chocolate Satin Ribbon to fashion a bow! I stamped a second image so that I could colour and pop the egg of the paper to give it a little dimension. a little Paper Piercing adds a touch of interest to finalize the clean look of the design!

Hope you enjoyed my first Public Display of Tilda..........you can find all kinds of great Tilda Stamps over at Magnolia-licious!

Happy Stamping!
