CAS At Totally Tilda

Morning, a new challenge started yesterday at Totally Tilda, our theme this fortnight is CAS, I must admit this isn't my favourite theme, lol.

I have coloured Aquarius Tilda in with distress reinkers, and added glossy accents on the water.

I have also used liquid pearls and a little sprinkle of glamour dust.

The paper is from Maja Design's 6x6 paper pad Vintage Spring Basics, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and then machine sewn with cream topstitch thread.

Scorpio Tilda

Morning everyone, I'm here today with my shabby chic creation for Live and Love Crafts, this is right up my alley :)

If Mr. Blogger is playing nice then this will go live just as I'm finishing my nightshift, I've got Carpal Tunnel and was supposed to be seeing the surgeon next week, however, my appointment has been brought forward to today at 10 o'clock, so here's hoping I can stay awake and not fall asleep while I'm in my appointment, lol.

I have coloured Scorpio Tilda in with distress markers and reinkers, this is one of my favourites from this collection, although I can't see why she is 'Scorpio' Tilda.............. I have used shabby white frantage around the image and also on the butterfly, but I have added a little sprinkle of shabby pink to the butterfly too.

I have used a Go Kreate die to cut the card out, the papers are from Maja Design, from both Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring basics, both of them the 12 x 12 sheet. Click on the thumbnails at the end to go straight to the products in the LLC shop.

I have tried something slightly different with her hair, and I think I like it.

Thanks for looking,
