Annie Peeks In On Tilda's House!!!
Happy Sunday Evening...I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a splendid week!!
My card tonight is made for Midnight Madness Challenge Sketch and I am sure mine is a bit "different"...lolol...The card is completely inspired by my wonderful friend Ann (Madgesty) from the UK who introduced me to Little Annie and also introduced me to Priscilla from Midnight Madness!!! So thank you very much, Ann!! You are truly an inspiration to me!!! Feel better real soon!!!
I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI Lemon Tart CS for the matting and the DP is from Marianne Design from the Netherlands. Little Annie and the window are both Fronts-N-Backs from Art Impressions so in order to use these stamps I had to actually cut a hole in the front of the card to fit the window....this may sound like a very easy thing to do BUT we are talking through 10 layers of papers and the whole thing had to line up with both the inside and outside window frames--Annie and the window are actually 4 separate stamps...so I am not going to admit how many times I had to cut and fit...lolol...Also the individual panes of the double window had to be cut out...You can also ask me if I am blind now!!!! Anyway...all of the coloring is Copics and I hope you can see by the picture below that everything is VERY dimensional. For the topiaries I used the 3 smallest round nesties and covered them with my own mix of FlowerSoft and put them in FlowerSoft pots that I curved by wrapping them around a pencil...the stem is actually leather shoe strings---I told you this was a DIFFERENT card...hahahha
On the inside of the card, you can see little Annie checking to see what is going on at Tilda's house...and how do we know it is Tilda's house???...Rufus, Tilda's Cat, Rocking Chair, and portraits of Loves Me Tilda, Tilda with Single Flower and Tilda with Birdcage...ALL of these stamps are now available at Magnolia-licious. If you don't believe these are really Tildas, you can click on the picture and then you can see they are actually Tildas that I had made into cards earlier...lolol...I framed them in little bitty Melissa Frances vintage frames.
I finished the card...whewwwwwwww...with some yellow pearls and a few yellow satin bows!! Finally I added a computer generated expression for the jotting spot...
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my little world...I hope you like this little card and will let me know what you think!!! Have a delightful week...Hugs!!!
