Mystery Tilda

Who knows this Tilda???? I have never seen her before. It is a stamped image I received from my dear friend Christina a long time ago. I have to say that she is my favorite Tilda, because she is so unique.

I wanted Tilda's outfit to have the Loden look. For the non-german speaking bloggers, Loden is a wool fabric that is usually olive green, brown, black or rust colored. I colored her with Prisma Pencils. The cardstock is from PTI and the matting is Basic Grey Archaic. On the right panel I stamped a border with Distress Ink using a Stempelglede flourish. The ribbon and lace is from my stash and I added a Prima flower.

And here is the inside.... I again used Basic Grey Archaic and white card stock for the matting. The middle panel is again stamped with Distress Ink, using the Stempelglede flourish stamps. The saying is from PTI Inside & Out: Thank you and stamped on a PTI die cut label. The peach ribbon and the heart embellishment are from my stash.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and thank you for leaving such sweet comments.
