Tilda and Bird
I started this card last night and have just finished it off. This is my favourite Tilda stamp, I just love the little bird. I have stamped and coloured the image with Prismacolors and Sansador and paper pieced Tilda's cardigan. The papers I have used are from K + Co and I embossed the teal card with one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders. I have stamped a couple of swirls down the side of the card and threaded some raffia through 2 eyelets. I then cut out 2 extra little birdies and added a flower.
I have just received some new Tilda's from Joanna Sheen, her delivery service has to be the best, I only ordered them on Thursday evening. I'm hoping to have a play with some later today but a couple have to go away as they are Mother's day pressies.
Hope you have a good weekend and get lots of crafting time.
