Skating Tilda Easel


I've been trying hard to post earlier in the evening but it's back to stupid o'clock tonight!  I don't think I've much to report this week, Iona and hubby are both on holiday, it is our half term break up here at the moment.  Unfortunately I don't have any time off left so I've been having to get up for work every morning while they are lazing around (usually still in bed) which doesn't exactly motivate me lol.

Anyway tonight's card.  It's really strange but when I first started papercrafting a/ I didn't care much for stamping and b/ I really didn't like Tilda.  Well, it just shows you how your tastes change and how your crafting develops over a period of time, I couldn't imagine not stamping now and Tilda has definitely grown on me!

I've had this stamp for several months now and hadn't got around to colouring it.  It's been coloured with ProMarkers then mounted on to 3 different die cut circles, the dies are a mix of X-cut and Spellbinders.  The spotty papers are Forever Friends Kraft Notes and were yet another magazine freebie.  The Poinsettia die set is by Spellbinders, Precious Stars by Memory Box and the Flourish is a cheapy from Carole's Crafts.
I've made the card into a twisted easel shape just for a change and added spotty organza ribbon and a spotty fabric brad.

I've stamped a Hot Off The Press sentiment onto more spotty paper and mounted it on Kraft card die cut with another Spellbinders die.  The wee stars are made using X-cut nesting dies too.  My card is finished with red and green gems.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday whatever you are up to.
