What a Huge Present !!!!!


Today I want to show you a Christmas card I've made using Magnolia's Tilda with a Large Christmas Gift stamp.  I really went to town with this card, and enjoyed every minute of it LOL!!!!

I did some distressing to give the card a bit of a vintage feel. I also added some glitter to my roses for an added bit of winter sparkle!!!

I coloured Tilda with my Copic Markers and used some Iridescent Stickles Glitter Glue to make it look like she is walking through frosty snow.  Here's a close up.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

So beautiful, love that image, and your colouring is so lovely!

Nice job on the colouring. You said the doily is from your stash, did you make it or was it purchased? I make my own flowers, but I tend to use ones that are about 1" and most of the ones I've seen for sale are larger. It hadn't occurred to me to use something doily sized, but I could probably crochet that too. I 'm crochetting a circular baby blanket that uses the same elements as part of a more complex pattern, so it shouldn't be hard to figure out. Thanks for the idea!
