Distressed Gardening Tilda

Happy Monday folks hope the sun is shinning where you are?
I have gardening Tilda to share with you today, I wish she could help with
our large garden..sigh.. this is the 1st time she has been inked up..shame on me..
come on hands up who else has unused stamps & STILL buys more?? yea thought so
look at all those hands in the air..knew I wasn't the only crafter to stash away
just in case they might be NEEDED.. we cant help ourselves..can we???
Anyways enuff waffle onto me card,  gardening Tilda is coloured with the
norm for me markers & prismas..matt & layered onto foam pads..I followed
the sketch for Just Magnolia chall.. DP’s are BG Sugared pad..&&&
I stitched around with the sewing machine..all the edges have been distressed too..
Don't forget Totally Tilda “Distressed” chall finishes Sat 16th July 12noon GMT.
I used a Cheery Lyn doily dye (still think these are fiddly) must get some tumble
dryer sheets , I was advised these could help with all the bits that need poking out..
plain green Bazzill has been thro the Roses E/folder.. mag swirl die cut..
Dragonfly charm, WOC flowers, MS B/fly punch for sparkly pink B/fly's..
lace & ribbon from stash.. phew think that's it..

Hi Christine, I think I have more un-inked stamps than ones I've actually used. I will NOT buy any new stamps until I've used the ones I already have...but that doesn't include anything I may be tempted to buy at Harrogate, and I'm counting down the weeks.
I love your gardening Tilda card, such a sweet image and the colours and papers are gorgeous.I do also love that doily die but my time is too short to be fiddling around poking bits out!
Hope the weather stays fine in Fi-lay.

Love Elaine xxx


Fabulous card Christine - Tilda looks lovely in her gardening overalls, and what a great layout - love the pinks and greens, and the embellishments.
Hope it's sunny and warm in Filey - hugs, Sylvia xxx
