Strolling Tilda & Edwin

On someone's blog I saw them post about a romantic couple of Tilda and Edwin for some reason my mind immediately thought of combining Edwin wants a hug and this Tilda that I can't remember her name. 

Both images are colored with copics. For the dress I used RV 32 & 34 but didn't have a third color in the spectrum so I used the clear pen and dabbed some color off the lighter one and then used that to add just a light touch of color to her dress. I cut out both Edwin and Tilda and kind of intertwined them a bit and then glued them to a basic grey background and used copics to make a shadow around them. Tilda's dress, hat and umbrella all have some frosted lace stickles on the edges. I distressed the edges and sewed them all down. The corners are nestabilities fleur-de-lis cut in half diagonally and then I rounded off the edges. I colored the pearls in the center of the flowers with a yellow copic and added the other pearls to the corners. I really liked how this card turned out. Now to figure out what to use it for. I am made this card for the Midweek Magnolia challenge of romantic and chic http://midweekmagnolias.blogspot.com.au/
