FLY LIKE A BUTTERFLY

 Good morning, it is chilly here in Gloucester but the sun is shining so it looks like it is going to be a nice day, a good one for drying the washing.
I have been enjoying seeing the wonderful Spring and Easter cards that are about at the moment so thought I would make a Spring time Tilda card.
I have been going through some of my stamps, again, and really felt the urge to start using my beloved Tilda stamps, I have loads and quite a few have yet to be opened, I just love to collect her, lol.
My choice was an older Tilda stamp that I have had for a long, long time, I coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics, I actually stamped her with Versafine Black Onyx then embossed her with clear embossing powder, I have tried to take photos at different angles for you to see it but I am not sure it has worked, I also used the same technique on the Butterfly the embossing shows up better.
The papers are LOTV, I have added some flower pearls, stamped sentiment, die cut butterfly border and doily, I added flower stamens for the butterfly's antenna. 




I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
If you would like to see my Tilda card from yesterday please scroll down.
I would like to thank you for visiting my blog, if you have left me a comment I really appreciate it thank you.
see you soon
hugs
