Happy is the Heart....


I guess this will be my last posting for June. This is my "just for fun" card. I've seen quite a few of this type of shape card being posted on various blogs and I really wanted to give one a try. I have used the second and third to the largest of my Go Kreate Dies for my shapes. Many of the cards were done vertically, but I wanted to use #264 LAYING TILDA from the new Sweet Rainbow collection. She is available from Magnolia-licious where Diana gives wonderful service and in-store credit each time you purchase something. How generous is that?!

So here is what I came up with. For me, it's kind of Shabby Chic. I don't do Shabby Chic too well because I like to keep my cards relatively clutter free.



I distress all the edges with tea dyed Distress Ink, inside and out. Here is a list of the Copics I used on Tilda...

Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, chalk for cheeks
Hair - C3, 5, 7, 9, blender pen
Blouse/Shoes - B21, 24, 32, E 31, 41, 43, 40, 42
Pants - E 40, 41, 42, 43, 31

Flowers - stash
Pearls - stash
Seam Binding - stash
DP - Fancy Pants - Family series
CS - SU
Spellbinders - Fancy Labels Die


Here is a closer look at Miss Tilda...


Just for the fun of it, a side view...



On the inside I repeated the same layers and added a computer generated sentiment, and fancied it up with a few more pearls.


I'm so appreciative of those of you who support my blog with encouragement. I hope you will be inspired by my work. Please feel free to CASE my work, but remember to give me credit for the originality.

Hugs,
Barb

  17. Barb, this is gorgeous. I like this Lying Tilda image very much—beautiful colouration. I don’t do shabby chic to well, but I do love yours. It still has the clean look to me, so I love it. Love the Go Create dies too—they’re elegant looking, but boy are they expensive. So many of my favorites things on your card—colour combo and the pearls too.
    Hugs,
