My first Tilda card!

Well here she is! I've been wanting to do a Tilda card for aaages! I got this image in a RAK and I think she's beautiful! I coloured her with my promarkers and the papers are Henbury Lane. I really wanted to try out a few new additions to my stash on this card - my white gel pen (with varying degrees of success) and some glitter dust I got (best seen on the close-up). I think I still need to play with them a bit more to get the best out of them so I expect you'll be seeing them on my next few cards too! I followed a sketch from Sketch and Stash and a recipe from Cupcake Craft Challenges (2 papers, 2 ribbons and 2 flowers). It also fits challenges at Totally Tilda (Stitching), The Crafty Pad (Glitz and Glitter), Pollycraft Monday Challenge (In stitches), The ABC challenge (B is for Blue) and Moving Along With The Times (Glitter).
Hope you like it!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
