Easter Blessings - Magnolia and Wildcard


Two Tilda cards for you today. The first one is a stamped image I got in a swap with DawnyP, the sentiment is by great impressions, and I do know that there isn't an Easter Bunny to be seen, but this card is for little children and it was the only Easter sentiment stamp I have. The image was coloured with copic markers, and the papers are just scraps really from my box labelled 'I've been hanging around forever, please use me'. You can tell by the fancy stitching that I am back in Florida with my beloved sewing machine. I can thread it in about 30 seconds, unlike my little Janome mini at home which takes me about an hour of squinting and trying to push one of those needle threaders through the eye, let alone get the cotton through. The dots are some plastic type dotty things that I found hanging around in a drawer. One of these days I will set myself a challenge to use up every one of these bits and bobs I have cluttering up the place.




This is the oval cut from Wildcard. I cut it again in shadow in a darker lilac, to add a contrast to the inside of the card. Tilda is coloured with copic markers, and the sentiment was a home made rub on done on the computer.

  4. Enfys, they are both just adorable!! I think my favorite is the first with Tilda perched on that cute little basket. Glad to have you back in the states, and I know what you mean about threading the machine. If I had to thread mine, I would never sew. I can't see the needle hole, let alone thread it. LOL

    Thanks for sharing.
