Prima Ballerina Tilda.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
My super bloggy friend bought me Prima Ballerina Tilda for Christmas.
I have made a shaped card with her.
Isn't she adorable? I love her.

I have stamped Prima Ballerina Tilda from the new Little Moscow Circus Collection 2013 onto Neenah cardstock with Memento rich cocoa ink and coloured her with 
Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
For the shaped card I have used  300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 from Cuttingedgecrafts. 
The pretty papers are Maja Design "Vintage Autumn Basics" from Live & Love Crafts. 
The white doily is from Ebay I have adhered 2mm white pearls to the top of the doily.
The gorgeous lace is also from Ebay. You can find it HERE 
I have used lots of Doohickey dies. They are big and small vintage daisies, twisted swirl and
 lovely fence.
I have inked the edges of all the Doohickey dies with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The foliage in between the daisies are Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches. I have also inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.
The ballerina charm is from The Ribbon Girl 
I have attached silver plated curb chain and rings to hang the ballerina charm from the back of the brad that is in the centre of the daisy..
The butterflies are Memory Box Pippi. I have Frantaged the butterflies with shabby blue embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts and coloured their centres with a powdwr blue Promarker.
The sentiment is Papermania

Here is a close up of the Doohickey daisies.
After I had inked the edges I gently squeezed the petals to make them raised.
I assembled the large daisy with an ivory brad and the smaller daisies I adhered together and placed a 2mm white pearl in the centre.

I surrounded Tilda with shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts and also added some 2mm white pearls.
I added ArtDeco glamour dust to Tilda's shoes and bottom of her dress.
I have adhered tiny blue rhinestones in Tilda's hair.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated.

I hope you like what you see?
