Twisted Easel

Hi everyone, if all goes to plan I'm away for my little girl's birthday weekend and Mr. Blogger is playing nice and is posting this scheduled post, fingers crossed.

It's time for another challenge at LHOSM. I was determined to only use Hanglar stamps for my DT cards here, but as I've just mentioned it was Grace's birthday on Friday and I'm back at work so what time I have had I've been rushing round like a headless chicken! So, as I didn't have any coloured Hanglars to choose from I'm using Tilda With Many Hearts which I'm ashamed to say, this is the first time this cutie has seen ink. This fortnight we want to see Easel Cards, and we're sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts. Even though I was a bit rushed I decided to make a twisted easel card, it's the first time I've ever made one, but I've been pushing my boundaries a bit lately so I thought 'Why not?'.

The paper is from Magnolia, I'm not sure if I've left the bottom a bit plain though. It looked OK to me until I've just added this picture...... Once again I've distressed and sewn the edges using The Ribbon Girls top stitch thread. The roses and lilies are from WOC.

Here's a slightly different angle to try and show you the twisted easel.

And another showing the card that I've tucked in a packet behind Tilda. I've coloured her in with my Distress Ink Markers, and added loads of glamour dust to the hearts. I'm entering this into the 'Love and Heart' challenge at Mad About Magnolias. It's also getting entered into the anything goes challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges.

Pop over to Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia and have a look at the rest of the fabulous inspiration the DT girls have for you.
