Tilda in sepia

These things happen. Once in a while you make a card you are quite happy with. This time I happened to get an inspiration from Magnolia Down Under Challenges Sepia challenge.

I think that little butterfly Tilda from spring kit looks absolutely lovely in nice vintage hues...


I coloured my Tilda with ProMarkers and added some subtle accents with Cinnamon stickles. Tea Dye ad Brushed Corduroy distress inks were used for sponging all the papers from Pink Paislee Winsome line. I sprayed doily and flowers with Glimmer Mists and added loads of flat-back pearls I got from Ebay. All the brads and ribbon were from my stash.

Thanks for looking!

Annika
