Tilda & co No 20 - BEADS OF GLORY




I made two cards this week - I had to hunt around for beads. The first card I made (Dark Red), thought I had gone OTT with the flowers when I had finished it, but decided I would show you anyway. I had to hand-cut the hearts as I am waiting for my Nestabilities, gathered and glued lace around both hearts, Strung some beads which I took off of a T Shirt on thin wire. I distressed cream paper with Inks and stamped it up with baby label stamp from Magnolia and "Miss You" stamp from Exclusive images. Flowers from Poppicraft, and pearls from stash, DP Basic Grey I added Bedazzles to the yolk of her dress, Tilda is coloured with Polychromos pencils and Sansodor.
The second Card (Pink) is a bit simpler, (not much) Thought I would have a go with masking, stamped and masked the fence then coloured the background with blue and green pastel chalks, Tilda bird and fenced all coloured wirh Polychromos again, Tilda's flower's have bedazzels in the centre, run out of single beads, so added a string of pink pearls on top of pink ribbon and added two strings of cream pearls under the flowers, all the stamps are magnolia, I distressed the two heart banners and added a pearl to each. Papers are Basic Grey everything else from stash Hope you like one of them. Tfl
