Star duster Tilda

Three posts in three days - wow! I haven't done that in quite sometime. There probably won't be a post tomorrow  as I work tonight and tomorrow and then have to get things ready for my Sunday School lesson. Here is  my card.


I think this Tilda is called Spellbinder. I saw this die cut from memory box and knew the two had to go together. No I did not paste on all this little stars. I cut them out using the die cut and then put the gold sparkly paper behind the cut outs. The blue paper is edged with some dark blue chalk ink and then around the cut out areas of the stars. I added some stardust stickles to the gold for more shimmers. Tilda is colored with copics. Her apron and shoes have crystal stickles added. The blue dp is from memory box and the pink is from bo bunny. I put red and pink stickles in the grass which by the way is a die cut from my favorite things. Really it is supposed to be waves but I though it could pass for grass in the wind. I added some flowers and pearls. Oh and Tilda's wand was paper pieced with the same gold paper as the stars. 
Here is a close-up of the stars.

Hope you enjoyed this card. I will be showing lots more different die cuts from memory box as I got carried away and bought several.
This card is done for the Anything Goes Challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge here.
It is also for the summer challenge over at All that Scraps here.

Peggie, that star die cut is fabulous. And I agree, it’s perfect to go with this adorable Tilda image. Gorgeous card. Beautiful DP’s you have. And wonderfully coloured. Isn’t it a chore to chalk around each of the start cutouts!!! Well worth it though. Terrific job on the card. Love it.

Hugs,
Norma
