Out the Window
Here is one of the new Tildas that I just fell in love with, Leaning Tilda and the Romantic window both available from Sir Stampalot. I`ve coloured her with distress inks and raised the image on foam pads to give the illusion that she is poking her head out of the window, the shutters and window frame is also decoupaged to give depth . I`m not entirely happy with the colouring I have to say, I ran out of my usual water colour paper and this one didn`t allow blending very well it is too absorbent, but I persevered with her anyway.
It didn`t help matters that I made this in the wee hours under artificial light either ( must invest in a daylight bulb !)
The flowers and leaves are a mix of Prima and Magnolia and the backing paper is Magnolia " You are so special - Lace Flower " also from Sir Stampalot.
The swirls at the side are cut from Storybook Cricut cartridge.
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all the lovely comments you all leave me, bye for now and happy crafting xx
