I've been itching to use this image for ages - you know how you do? Anyway, this seemed like the perfect time of year to use it.
The original plan for the design was totally different, Tilda was going to be set into an early summer scene but ... the best laid plans of mice and men..... so this is how she turned out. I'm not one hundred percent sure about this card because she seems a bit swamped by the curly rose from Wild Orchid Crafts - I just can't resist them. It's difficult to see thatI spritzed the rose amd the asters (from the same source) with Glimmer Mist in Juneberry Wine to glitz them up a bit.
The design is based on a sketch by the lovely Mina although I can't remember where I picked it up (sorry Mina!) I just always loved it so stored it for future use.
The ovals were cut with my trusty Nesties and the smaller one was embossed with a folder from Indentz - a new range of embossing folders by Samuel Taylor, a retailer here in the North of England. The pearls are from The Hobby House. The ones in the bottom right corner started off cream but I coloured them with my Copics.
I hope you're all having a lovely, restful Sunday - thanks for visiting today.
