Tilda makes a blueberry blanket

Good afternoon all. A short post to share a Tilda card with you today. I had some trouble getting this  card started, nearly quit half way through. Well, I managed to finish it and hope you like it.

I have combined several challenge themes for this card, using craft paper and neutral tone DPs. The main image is Tilda making a blueberry blanket. I used masking technique to stamp the kitchen bench which Tilda is sitting on.

The card measures 5"(W) x 6"(H). I used craft cardstock as the base and Melissa Frances DP. The stamped images were colored with Copic markers. I did some top stitching and decorated the card with ribbons, lace, chip board sewing needle, mini wooden spool, doily, pearls, cross stitch thread, linen thread, hand rolled paper flowers, and used shirt buttons. Dies used here are from Spellbinder, Magnolia DooHickey and Memory Box.

Thanks very much for stopping by, hope to see you soon.


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

Elena F said...

Very pretty. I added you to my subscriptions. Im speaks english bad, but I have one question if you can response me, How do you did to layer the spellbinders layers with a little bother of them?? Thanks a lot. Sorry my english.

Katie K said...

Hi Elena,
I am replying your question regarding the Spellbinder layers. I am guessing you wanted to know how I mat the designer papers. I cut the designer papers using Spellbinder dies. I used the same dies and traced the outline on card stock (the outline is about 1/16" larger than the die, then I cut out the shapes with scissors. I glued the design paper to the card stock.
I used 3D foam dots in between each layers to add dimension.
If I misunderstood your question, just let me know. Don't worry about your English, type your message in your language in Google Translate and translate it to English. Cut and paste the translated comment in my blog comment.
