Ooh-La-La - Tilda in Paris!!!!


I decided that as it was Spring, and Paris went beautifully with Spring, I would make a card on this theme, and have followed the great sketch from Mumur for my entry for Friday Sketchers. The card also fits in with this week's Papertake Challenge just announced which features stripes and spots.
There is quite alot of detail in this card to explain, but quite simply the papers again are a mish-mash of digital downloads, but I am proud to say that some of them I even made up myself - gosh I am learning. The photo below shows a close up of the detail of the front of the card. I have paper pieced some of Tilda's clothes, and the flowers were made using a paper punch and then using a ball tool to curve them. The flowers are Mulberry which have had a small amount of glitter added.


The inside of the card is made up with the Magnolia Eiffel tower stamp and another Tilda image. I have matted up the papers on the inside so in the end this became quite a heavyweight card.


The front of the envelope box features the same inside detail on the front with a black bow and the inside of the envelope has the same spotted detail taken from the front of the card.


I would love your comments if you have a moment if you stop by. Thank you xx

Oh la la indeed Ann, your card is very chic! Tilda looks perfect in gay Paris and everything is so beautiful. Great stuff on making your own paper and Tilda's little skirt looks very fashion week in Paris! The inside is so beautiful too. Hope you're well and having a good weekend. Chris x

Sammie said...

The colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous and the lacy border punch is a cheeky little addition. I 'd love to know the magic you have that means you can use so many elements on one card and make it look so perfectly elegant and balanced.
Love,
Sammie
