Beautiful Tilda

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well? It's very hot here in Derbyshire today. I'm melting! Lol!!!

Today there is a new challenge starting at Marvelous Magnolia and this time around our challenge them is Monochrome.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are
The Rubber Buggy
Dies R Us
Scrapbook Boutique

We want to see your lovely cards/projects in monochrome.
I had to look this one up because I thought monochrome was black & white but, as it turns out monochrome is a painting/drawing in different shades of a single colour so I have gone with

I used Beautiful Tilda from the So Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders stately circle.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics papers.
Other dies used are Little Darlings lovely view, Doohickey lovely fence and Memory Box Isabella butterfly. I have inked the edges of the papers and die cuts with Tim Holtz spun sugar ink.
I rubbed spun sugar distress ink over the doily & cheese cloth from ebay and the rose organza trim from The Ribbon Girl.
The pink organza ribbon is from Fantastic Ribbons.
The pink 5mm pearls and tiny rhinestones are from my craft stash.
The dove is from The Ribbon Girl. I used  Frantage shabby pink embossing enamel on it.

I used a selection of flowers from Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.

A close up of Beautiful Tilda.
I gave her a nose! Lol!!!
I sprinkled shabby pink embossing enamel around the image and coated Tilda's wings with ArtDeco glamour dust.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

You have 2 weeks to enter this challenge and we would love to see what you create.
My teamies have designed some gorgeous creations.

I'll be back on Sunday with my DT card for Simply Magnolia.
