Little Ballerina Tilda at Friday Sketchers #112



Happy Friday Everyone!! Thanks so much for dropping by! I hope you have had a marvelous week and are looking forward to an even better weekend!! I am going to enjoy this one since this Monday I begin 7-9 weeks of radiation, Monday through Friday for each of those weeks. I will be glowing for sure then!! lol

Today at Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the marvelously talented and creative Jeanette from Canada who has provided us with a fun and very useable sketch. There is also a wonderful prize from Simon Says Stamp so I hope you will come over and play along with us using Jeanette's marvelous sketch!!

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI Sweet Blush and Spring Rain, and the DP is Melissa Frances. I used the darling little Ballerina Tilda from Magnolia-licious and it looks as though she is not available at the moment but I'm sure if you contact Diana she will tell you the status of this cutie. She was stamped twice on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a bit of Diamond Stickles and Prisma Glitter. One of the images was cut out and propped up for dimension. I used pink tulle for the horizontal, adding a ballet shoe button for the closure. I also added several pink half pearls, a rose button, and the floral treatment is a combination of a Magnolia Shabby Chic Tulle Rose from Magnolia-licious and smaller roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I didn't have time to complete the inside of my card because of doctors' appointments but hopefully will add it over the weekend for you to see. Somehow I don't feel like my card is finished unless the inside is completed also...sigh

I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Jeanette's's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Aud, Bea, Carole, Claudia, Inge, Jacqueline, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja

Note: How about dropping over and checking out the latest Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbons and while you are there drop in on Bonnie's Shop to see the phenomenal selection of ribbons, trims, etc. that she has in stock and that you could win in the challenge!! If you have never visited this shop, you will be AMAZED!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my world...I appreciate each of you so much...and hope you will come back often. Enjoy your day and hope to see you tomorrow for my Just Magnolia posting. Hugs to all!!

Nancy said...

This card is stunning! I love the bling and your coloring is beautiful! I was wondering what type of adhesive you used to prop up Tilda after coloring her on the Cryogen White paper? I've used it before and love how the copics work on it but whatever 3-dimensional adhesive I've used usually shows through. I'd love to know your secret. :)

Thanks! and keep crafting! I LOVE your cards!

Terry said...

This card is so soft and feminine. I can't wait until my grand daughter is older to use the ballerina Tilda. Your work is just gorgeous.
