Cross Stitch Heart Tilda

I am still on a roll with the minis. Just loving them. I didn't think I would like them as well as the full size but I am quickly changing my mind. Here is Tilda with Cross Stitch Heart.
She reminds me of the chorus at church - This Little Light of Mine I'm goin' let it shine shine til Jesus comes. She is colored with copics. That is another thing I am surprised how well theses minis color with copics. The circles are done with nestabilites. The dp is from making memories. The little squares were from pez-a-doodle which went out of business. I have never seen them any where else. The swirly sticks I did myself. Here is a close-up.
I took a flower soft wire and wrapped it around the end of a paint brush and the pulled it off and stuck it in some glue. Next I put some sand colored flower soft in a little plastic box with the swirled wire and shook it around so that the entire wire was covered. For the reddish one I used polar white flower soft and colored it with a few drops of cranberry alcohol ink. The heart over the bow was from Target. I got those along time ago.

Hope you enjoyed today's mini. Thank you for all the sweet comments.

It's perfect, Peggie! Thank you for sharing the Flower Soft technique, too! I don't have the FS wire, but I bet I have other wire that would work! How genius with a lovely result!
