Let's Go To The Hop...

TGIF! We're almost at the weekend! Jordan started back to school yesterday and the girls go back to Parent's Day Out Tuesday next! Woooo Hoooooo!

I found a little time here and there to make another card. This one is a Maggie and she is #3019 Tilda Playing Hopscotch. She is available over at Magnolia-licious so you can order her right away. Diana has some fantastic sales and offers going on there so please be sure to check them out.

This card was fun to make. It just seemed to flow, though the inside upper panel is still unfinished at this point.

Here is my card front...




There is lots of stitching on this card and I used some older MME paper's that I've had in my stash. I also used some gauze, Vintage Lace die, Swirl die, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some SU ribbon and Spellbinders Labels to gussy up my card.






Here is a closer look at Tilda...



I took two pictures of the card from different angles...just a little different perspective...






On the inside of the card I did something a little different. I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty One with more Swirls, pearls, flowers and more gauze! I really like the way this card turned out. The flowers are sprayed with Pearl Glimmer mist and then a shot of spray on adhesive and a light dusting of glitter.



All I need to do with this card is finish the upper inside panel and we'll call it a day. I have already used the polk-a-dot dp on it, but it just needs a little something more...I'll fiddle with it tonight.

Here's a list of the Copics I used...Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, Chalk for cheeks; Hair E27, 30, 34; Dress/socks - B21, 93, 95, 97; Shoes - E47, 34, 31; Shadows - W00, 01, 3 and some Distress Inks behind Tilda - weathered wood and tattered roses.


Thank you everyone for being so faithful to my blog and leaving your wonderful comments. Our first week of 2012 is now behind us and we're looking forward to a VERY good year this year!

Blessings and hugs...
Barb

  1. Hi Barb!
    You are very keen doing all that stitching. So neat too. I love the soft colors of the blues with the dark brown mats behind. Your coloring is always lovely. The inside is just as flash as the outside. Super job Barb.
