Biking with Tilda

When I first saw this stamp on someone's site (I think, Suzanne's) I knew I had to have it. At first it was out of stock but finally I was able to get it. I think it is just great.

 

I used basic grey lemonade paper for the paper piecing on Tilda's top and for all the background paper. It all started because the lace was hanging down from my top shelf and I had to find something to match it.  I colored Tilda with prisma color pencils. I have always used copics on my Tilda's before and thought I would like to try something different. The bike has diamond glaze on it like it is a shiny new bike. I keep eying a pink bike at Target and don't get it because I'm not sure I would really ride it but I think it is cool just the same.  There is some stickles on Tilda's shoelaces and her hair ribbons.  Gold stickles is in the center of the flowers.  Added some string of pearl baubles on the side and a organza ribbon at the top.

Great paper piecing. And that would really raise eyebrows among the neighbors, wouldn't it, you riding along on a shiny pink bike from Target. But its almost like mobile bubble gum or something. Pretty color choices int his card too.
