Happy Sunday, Everyone! I hope that each of you has had a magnificent weekend and that all the Moms have had a very special day!!
This card was made for the unique challenge suggested by Suzan Laferty on the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Site which was "to design your own Butterfly Tilda by adding butterfly wings to an existing Tilda image." Suzan asked us to perform our own metamorphosis on poor Little Tilda...lol For those of you who remember (or have read about...lol) the Hippie era, you will know that many Hippies embraced Eastern philosophy. So I decided to let little Flower Power Tilda, who reminds me of a little hippie with flowers in her hair, wander off to the East also.
My 6"X6" card uses Bazzill and Making Memories CS and the DP is from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection--that sounds Eastern or hippie, doesn't it?? I have used Flower Power Tilda and Tulips and Grass, both from the Shabby Chic Collection 2008 and both available at Magnolia-licious, the best source for Magnolia stamps in North America. All panels are double matted and stitched. Tilda was colored with Copics and the flower wreath in Tilda's hair and the Tulips are colored with Sakura Souffle pens for a touch of texture. On the front, Tilda's wings are parts of a Prima glitter and sequin butterfly. I used a ribbon panel with MS lattice arch punched sides with light orange organza ribbon and turquoise silk ribbon. All flowers are Primas and the centers are BG Marrakech brads. The small butterflies are from Creamotion in the Netherlands. Tilda and wings are connected with Scor-Tape and are then placed on dimensional tape on triple nesties.
The inside of the card uses coordinating papers from the same collection with all panels stitched. The first panel adds the turquoise ribbon again with another Tilda resting on double nesties. This time I made Tilda's wings with feathers, airbrushed first, then dotted with Copics. The jotting panel was stamped with a portion of the tulip stamp which repeated a bit of the graphics of the DP and placed on nesties. Finally I added another butterfly, same as on the front.
I hope you like this little hippie and will want to play along with this fun challenge. Be sure to send a pic of your card to Diana at firstname.lastname@example.org. She has a gallery on her site for the Butterfly Wings Challenge and you should have a peek at such pretty submissions. Thank you, Suzan, for such a fun and unique challenge!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Take care and be safe...Hugs...
