Evening, all! I'm not going to mention the weather...
When I saw this adorable Waterlily Tilda I had to buy her - since my granddaughter is called Lillie! She's coloured in Promarkers. I put baby blue stickles on the water and magenta on the butterflies' wings, and glamour-dusted the floral arrangement - and of course it doesn't show in the picture :(
I used a Nesties Labels Eight die to cut her out, and distressed the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink while the die was still in place - I added more colour at the bottom to extend the pond area.
Papers are Nitwits Tour of London, they're so pretty! The ribbon and charm and metal corner are from stash. I went a bit 'wild' with the Wild Orchid flowers! The leaves are made with a Woodware Punch. The butterflies are shiny stickers that were a pressie from my daughter.
The lovely sketch is from this fortnight's Sunday Sketch and Stamp it was just right for this!
I'm also entering the current challenge at Just Magnolia where the theme is 'All the Bs' in other words, use lots of things beginning with B! I used: Blue, a Bow, Bling, Blossoms and Butterflies! Isn't that a great Challenge?!
Thanks for looking!
love Mags B x
