Sweet Tilda as a Shepherd

Hello lovely peeps!!!

I hope this week has started off brilliantly for you, just as it did for me :)

Today I have a new card to share with you - this time it's a cute criss-cross card, featuring Tilda as a Shepherd. This was from the 2010 Easter Collection (yeah, quite a long time ago, but nowadays antiques are more valued !! :)) She IS cute, and as Easter is next in line, I thought why not use it again?





This time I experimented and risked more with colouring, by adding more detailed grass and a cloudy sky. I will continue to perfect this skill, but I really love the effect. Actually all the colouring (Tilda and the lamb are coloured with DI, while the grass and sky are coloured in Copics) came out very nicely, at least I am pleased with it! :)






This is the insert of the card, which I decorated with die-cuts, gold ribbon, self-adhesive flat back gems (can't do a card without them, at least if it is not a masculine card), and a punched butterfly; embellished with pearls and Stickles.






From this angle you can notice the dimension of the flowers, the Stardust Stickles on her socks, on the lamb's cute blue bow and on Tilda's hair bows.





In this image one can observe the completed card - with the insert in place. I also got to play with my new Parsley and rocket salad die; I really like the effect it adds to the bouquet.

Materials used for this card:

Papers - Magnolia for the main card, loose paper from my stash for  the insert (don't know the name)

Embellishments: paper doily, lace, self-adhesive pearls, flowers form my stash, Stardust Stickles, White gel pen

Stamps used: Magnolia, Stempelglede (for the inside of the card), and the round sentiment stamp - I forgot its name - sorry!

Dies: Magnolia, Sizzix Emily Atherton, Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles, Spellbinders swirls.





Distress Inks used:

Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick
Dress and bows: Stormy sky, Weathered Wood, Black Soot
Shoes, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Staff and Hair : Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Lamb: Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick


Copics: Grass: G82, G99
Sky: B0000, B91, C00, N0

  12. such a wonderful card, Rosette! I love all the details and cute image, habe it myself and really should use it again. I am not really into Easter as I think of all the baby animals that are killed for food and I cannot cope with this and therefore celebrate my love for God with vegan food. I am sure he does not want us to kill all these babies in such a cruel way.
    Oh, you are the lucky winner of my candy :)
    Have a lovely Sunday, love!
    Big hugs, Ally
