Glamorous Tilda

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all had a lovely Easter break!

I was so thrilled to have some sunshine and that meant I could get in the garden so those fence panels are in and the garden is looking a whole lot tidier now :-)

I did have a bit less crafting time as a result but still got a few DT cards done as well as this card that I made for a few challenges...

I wanted this Tilda for ages but she always seemed to be out of stock so I was delighted to finally get hold of her a month or so ago...and it still took me until now to ink her up!

She got a pretty paper-pieced dress and I added a little Copic shading for depth.

You can see I couldn't resist using my Go Kreate dies again ;-)
I'm not getting bored of these any time soon so hope you aren't either!
