Framed Tilda

Tilda is always cute enough to frame - so I did. The flowers Tilda is holding reminded me of the spring flowers I am seeing outside.


Tilda is colored with copics with frosted lace stickles on her dress and crystal stickles on the flowers. The frame is cut from Palace Oval Frame by Memory Box. It is cut out of a piece of cardboard in a fancy feast cat food box. :) Waste not want not! Then it was sprayed with a walnut ink with a gold mica or something like that added. I made the mixture years ago and can't quite remember what I did. The flowers are from Prima flowers with a pink candy dot in the middle. The dp's and ribbon are some I have had sitting around. The butterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart punch which now seems to be ruined. I can't get the butterflies out now. I really don't like punches - they seem to wear out way too soon for the money spent.

Hi, Peggie..what a perfectly adorable card. I love how you've recycled your cardboard! Who have think it!! Here's a little tip for your punches... try putting a bit of waxed paper between the punch and your paper. It works well on those intricate dies and I'm thinking it will work for your finicky punch. I hope it works for you...hugs...Barb

Wow, what a lovely Tilda. I never would have guessed where that cardboard came from either. What a great project just a week from "Earth Day"

Cheers, Holley

Your Tilda is done up so cute and I would never have guessed you used a catfood box for that frame.

I have heard that punching aluminum foil a bunch of times will help sharpen your punch.

Very pretty card! Love your coloring!
