Monochromatic Tilda with Violin- Marvelous Magnolia DT Card

Hi Everyone!

Once again it's time for a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia.
The new challenge theme is Monochrome.
We would like to see your creations in colors of a single hue.

For my DT card, I chose the neutral tone ~ beige, kraft, and brown.

The tag card measures 6" x 4".
I distressed paper edges with Distress Tool, Distress Ink, and chalk ink.
I also top stitched the image and DP panels.
I decorated the card with ribbons, organza ribbon roses, lace, pearls,
chip board, twine, charm, and snowflake punch-outs.

I water colored Tilda With Violin with Walnut Stain DI.
I  added glitters on the wings and stamped 
tiny snowflakes and added some pearl drops in the background.

Dies and punches used are from Spellbinders, Magnolia, 
Memory Box,Tim Holtz, and Martha Stewart.
DPs are Pion Designs.
The music notes are Dusty Attic chip board.
Sentiment is from Stampin'Up.

I used CLP's November sketch for my LO.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed this visit.

I would love it if you hop over to Marvelous Magnolia to see 
my team mate's gorgeous creations and join in the fun creating.
You can win free prizes from our sponsors.


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
