Tilda Holding Lilacs

Monochromatic Madge has struck again!!  

It is so easy to slip into the comfortable, safe and sometimes boring monochromatic state.  I envy those of you who can intermingle colours and patterns to get  absolutely marvelous results.  When I try, it looks like yesterday's breakfast left on the counter overnight.

This is another card that has to be mailed for a swap, thus it is no thicker than 1/4" -   I  try not to make them entirely flat, but I try to keep it thin enough to slip through Canada Post's mandated slot (which, I believe gets thinner and thinner after the postage lurches up that incredible penny every year).

A friend sent me the image of "Tilda Holding Lilacs",  so I just had to colour her up.

(Diana, at  Magnolia-licious  has it in stock right now)

Lavender, lilac, mauve, and  light purple all favourite colours of mine - even though nothing in my wardrobe is any of the above.

I used copics to colour Tilda and "The Spring Fence",  cut them out and popped Tilda onto the fence with 3D tape.   I stamped off the SU " Blossoms Abound" stamp onto the white SU top note die cut  with Lovely Lilac and sponged the edge to pop it off the  Always Amethyst top note, also sponged with Lovely Lilac.  The DP is also SU.  The ribbon is  iridescent white, knotted and tucked under the DP and the flowers are a 3D sticker found in my "purple" stash drawer

Hope you like it - I appreciate each and every comment left and hope you will take the time to leave one.  

Remember, Stamp up a Storm, Ink up a Wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

Rubber hugs, inky wishes, Cricut chirps and Cuttlebug squishes,

Oh how gorgeous! Even though I don't like purple, your mix of mauves and lavenders here is quite effective. The sponging behind Tilda is really pretty! I love the bright daffodils along the fence, just the right pop of color...hugs...Barb
