With Love From Tilda

Published February 9, 2009 by isisimaginings

Evening all, I hope everyone had a great weekend. Sorry there was no post. I finished today’s card on Saturday, but too late to photograph it & I spent yesterday at my friend Kelly’s, playing with her gorgeous girls & eating the delicious roast chicken dinner she cooked. The rain started while I was there & it has yet to stop. We’ve gone from blizzard warnings to flood warnings in a week! Anyway, on to today’s card.

I had no intention of making a Valentine’s card, but this week’s Tilda challenge at DC is to make a red card with the word ‘Love’ on it. So I threw caution to the wind & came up with this.

I thought long & hard about using a patterned paper on this card, but decided against & I think it was the right decision. So, the ingredients are:

  • C5 white card
  • Red & silver cardstock
  • Tilda image coloured with Whispers pens, (sash coloured with silver pen)
  • Ribbons from Crafty Ribbons
  • Flower, brad, heart gems & adhesive gems from Papermania
  • Heart stamps from Papercraft Inspirations magazine
  • Swirl stamps from Marie Curie stamp set from Papermania
  • Circular sentiment stamp – Cuddly Buddly
  • Brilliance Inkpads – Rocket Red & Starlight Silver
  • Embossing powders – ‘Heat It Up’ Silver Pearl, Debbie Moore Red & ‘Sparkle & Sprinkle’ Silver
  • Anita’s 3D Glaze

You can see where the silver heart crinkled a little when I used the heat gun on it, but I like the result & the silver embossing powder on the other heart & the swirls has a lovely sheen to it, which doesn’t show in this image. All in all, I quite like the finished result. I have no idea who I’ll give it to tho’ – another one to the add to the ever-growing box of my cards! 🙂

I made one card today that fulfils two challenges on DC, I’ll post it tomorrow. There are few other challenges that I really want to complete this week, so I’m going to be very focused tomorrow, Thursday & Friday, (have hospital appointment on Wednesday), & try to get them finished.

My friend Jen takes great photos & I’ve been trying for ages to persuade her to start a blog. Well, this afternoon I succeeded! It’s called Shadows and Shade I think it’s going to be fab. Welcome to the happy, (and slightly crazy), world of blogging Jen! 🙂

Have a nice evening, I hope you’re warm & dry wherever you are. See you tomorrow.

Love & light.
